Myrtle Beach Family Vacation
The Grand Strand was purchased with developing a vacation and resort area in mind. The economy here continues to be dominated by the tourism industry and nourished by southern hospitality. In the late 1800's F.G Burrough's bought 80,000 acres of South Carolina land that included the coastline that now includes Little River, North Myrtle Beach, Myrtle Beach, Surfside Beach and all the way to Murrells Inlet. He envisioned a family vacation destination that would rival northern resort areas like Atlantic City, NJ and Coney Island, NY.
Burrough's had a turpentine and mercantile business in Conway, SC, which eventually grew to include timber and other consumer goods when he joined forces with Benjamin Collins of Georgetown County. Their riverboats traveled with various goods along the Waccamaw River and as a result, the city of Conway became primary hub in the area for trade. F.G. Burrough's dreamed of connecting Conway to his coastal property and the two set about making plans to connect the two areas via railroad. Mr. Burrough's passed away before the railroad was completed but Collins continued working on the project with Burrogh's sons. In 1900, the first train rolled through the swampy, undeveloped areas of Horry County and arrived at the beautiful beaches of The Grand Strand. The late F.G. Burrough's dreams were finally realized when the area's first hotel, The Seaside Inn, opened in 1901.
If you want a taste of the wild and beautiful beaches that F.G. Burroughs fell in love with, visit the Myrtle Beach State Park. There are 320 acres of untouched oceanfront land to explore and enjoy. The land was gifted by what was then known as the Myrtle Beach Farms Company which was a conglomeration of Burroughs, Collins and a new business parter, Simeon Chapin. The company is now known as Burroughs & Chapin.
