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 Brigman (“Jeb”). 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.”

Hi Kenneth! The best place to start would probably be to give the Conway Chamber of Commerce a call at (843) 248-2273. I’m sure they’ll be able to get you in touch with the right people. Good Luck!

I graduated from Conway in 86′ and was wanting to go back and have my son and another band play there. I was told Hundredth, Larry Biddles’ grandson’s band, has played there. My son and the other band play the same genre of music. I would have a lot of fans in the Conway and Columbia area to attend. Who would I contact if this could go on?
