Myrtle Beach Historic District Workshop Planned for Property Owners and Community 


The Myrtle Beach Downtown Redevelopment Corporation, in partnership with the City of Myrtle Beach, is gearing up for a Historic District Workshop, set for 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, Aug. 28. The educational workshop takes place at the Historic Myrtle Beach Train Depot, 851 Broadway St., in Myrtle Beach. The workshop serves as an effort to communicate with the business community and interested parties about the positive, potential benefits of the historic designation.

The event was planned after the district received a unanimous vote from the South Carolina Department of Archives and History, placing Myrtle Beach’s Historic District on the nomination list for the National Register of Historic Places in late July.  With the nomination now approved, the Myrtle Beach Downtown Historic District continues the process necessary to achieve designation on the National Register of Historic Places. This allows contributing buildings to use state and federal tax credits.  

The Myrtle Beach Downtown Historic District nomination is comprised of structures associated with the early development in Myrtle Beach History, spanning from 1927 to 1969. It includes portions of Main Street, Oak Street, Broadway Street, North Kings Highway and Eighth and Ninth Avenues North. In total, 18 contributing buildings and eight noncontributing buildings are under review.

The DRC is eager to host the workshop to help property owners and the community learn more about what the accreditation would mean for Myrtle Beach. And, attendees will  receive information about the financial resources available to property owners who wish to remodel, renovate or modify their building.

Saying Thanks - Honoring Our Police and Firefighters

All summerlong, your Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce and Myrtle Beach Area Hospitality Association, with the help of our chamber ambassadors and generous business sponsors, will be hosting a series of breakfasts to show appreciation for the dedication of Grand Strand area police officers and firefighters. We hope this simple gesture will remind them how much we appreciate what they do to protect our residents, visitors and businesses.

Thank you conveys our gratitude. But more than that, it’s a sign of respect to the person who has helped you and an indication that you do not take them for granted. That’s why saying thank you matters.

Thank you!
