Tobacco Barn Project

In 2008 and 2009, the Waccamaw Center collaborated with the Black Creek Arts Council of Darlington County in a traveling exhibit featuring photgraphs of historic tobacco barns. Museums in Hartsville, Florence, Latta, Mullins, and Conway hosted the exhibit.  The photographs were taken by Benton Henry of Latta. Dr. Prince served as project historian, writing copy for the photographs and speaking at the venues.

Peter Horry Project

Peter Horry, the person for whom Horry County is named, was an officer in the War for Independence and a substantial rice planter in the early republic period. Horry kept a journal describing his business affairs, travels, and social life. Dr. Roy Talbert of Coastal Carolina University, assisted by Meggan Farish, are transcribing the journal for publication. The Waccamaw Center is providing academic and material support for the Peter Horry Project.
