Tom Poland – South Carolina Country Roads
The Horry County Museum and the AVX Foundation present a program by author Tom Poland October 20 at 1 p.m. in the museum’s McCown Auditorium. Poland will discuss his book South Carolina Country Roads: Of Train Depots, Filling Stations & Other Vanishing Charms. Venture off the beaten path to forgotten roads, where a hidden South Carolina exists. Time-travel and dead-end at a ferry that leads to wild islands. Cross a rusting steel truss bridge into a scene from the 1930s. Behold an old gristmill and imagine its creaking, clashing gears grinding corn. See an old gas pump wreathed in honeysuckle. Drive through a ghost town and wonder why it died. Free.
