The state of South Carolina is rich with history and tradition.
Our state’s history dates all the way back to 1663–the year our colony was founded–and a number of historical buildings located within Horry and Georgetown counties have been recognized by the National Register of Historic Places.
It’s interesting to look back at historic architecture and recognize how much has changed over the years. We appreciate beauty in all of the buildings located around us–both new and old–and we thought we’d share a few of them with you.
