Georgetown and the Waccamaw Neck in South Carolina are steeped in historic and folkloric literature, reflective of the area's rich cultural past. This volume brings that treasury to bear in a collection of vintage postcards from the region compiled for the first time. You will see how the area's aristocratic past ties to present-day Georgetown and the nearby resorts of Pawleys Island and Murrells Inlet and the renowned Brookgreen Gardens. Also included are nostalgic views of life on plantations along the Santee Rivers, which relied upon Georgetown for economic trade, then and now. The communities depicted in this book were among America's wealthiest 150 years ago. That legacy is still seen in architectural remnants-plantations, churches, and town houses now restored to their former grandeur.
Susan Hoffer McMillan, amateur historian, tour guide, and author of Myrtle Beach and Conway in Vintage Postcards, shares her passion for the Georgetown area as told through historical descriptions of more than 200 vintage postcards. Whether a vacationer or resident in Georgetown's tidelands, you are sure to enjoy in these pages the mystery and intrigue that this Lowcountry area imparts to all who experience its beauty.
