Museum Matinee – Simeon Brooks Chapin: A Man of Action
The Horry County Museum’s 2020 Documentary Film Series continues with a free screening of Simeon Brooks Chapin: A Man of Action. A successful businessman, Simeon Brooks Chapin was involved in each of the communities in which he lived, including Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. His philanthropy provided for schools, churches, libraries, hospitals, and YMCAs. He showed his care of people by establishing programs and institutions to make their lives better. Even after his death in 1945, his philosophy lives on. Through his four foundations, he continues to build the communities he loved and inspire others. The film will be shown September 16th at 1 p.m. at the Horry County Museum in Conway.
