Conway Peanut Warehouse – Conway, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Horry County Photos | Conway Peanut Warehouse
Night falls on a familiar Conway landmark, the Peanut Warehouse. Built in 1900 to store tobacco, the building was later used as a fertilizer and peanut warehouse – hence its name.
Located just off the Waccamaw River, Conway’s Peanut Warehouse played a role in the riverine and railroad economy that defined the area around the turn of the 20th century.
Today, it plays host to Bluegrass on the Waccamaw, a one-day SC bluegrass festival held the second Saturday of May each year.
Reflections on Conway Peanut Warehouse
The picture above was taken by John English “Jeb” Brigman. Jeb writes: “Today the Peanut Warehouse is a venue for social events from high school proms to birthdays or gatherings of any sort. It, as well as two other warehouses, stands as a lasting monument to the business and culture of living on the Waccamaw River.”
UPDATE: The Peanut Warehouse is no longer available to rent.
