Rodger Stroup: South Carolina’s Railroads: What’s Gone, What’s Still Here
The Horry County Museum and The AVX Foundation present a lecture by Dr. Rodger Stroup on South Carolina’s railroad heritage, September 17th at 1 p.m. at the museum. From 1830 to the mid-20th century, railroads were the primary means of moving people and products across the state. Stroup will show examples of structures such as roundhouses, water tanks, coal bunkers, and maintenance sheds, as well as trackside vignettes and historic rail cars that were once common, but are now rarely seen.
