Pawleys Island Pavilion – Pawleys Island, South Carolina

Gene Brigman writes, “This painting is Pawleys Island Pavilion as I remember it in the early 1960s. I know that there were more than one of these, all having burned. For a boy of 15 or 16, I remember the really ‘cool’ cars that I wanted so desperately but would never have. Just to go hang-out, shag, and be ever mindful of the opposite sex was quite the summer ritual.”

In 1955 while in high school in Georgetown, S. C., I started going to what I call the Old Pawleys Island Pavilion near the aouth causeway. I spent a many a night there from the time it opened in the spring until it closed in the fall. Spring was when there were house parties at Pawleys. House parties meant lots of young ladies to dance with. The juke box was filled with beach/shag music and would play three songs for a quarter. The Old Pavilion from 1954-1957 did not have a covered porch as shown in the drawing.

The Pawleys Pavilion was designed by my father, Albert S. Thomas, Jr. from Columbia, S.C. He was an architect partner of Southern States Construction Company.
