Horry County Archives Center
Established by the Horry County Higher Education Commission in 2006, the Horry County Archives Center (HCAC) at Coastal Carolina University focuses on researching the history of Horry County and surrounding counties. The center works with local history-minded groups to find significant historical material, preserve it and make it accessible to the public. The HCAC Research Room houses Kimbel Library's long established "Waccamaw Collection," a collection of books dealing with the history of the Waccamaw River region, as well as recently purchased microfilm copies of historic land documents. The center plans to seek out privately held historic documents that would be of local interest and work to digitize those items.

Other letters describe Confederate military camp life on North Island and Cat Island, in Georgetown District, SC. This collection is hosted through a partnership with the Lowcountry Digital Library.
