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.
This shot was taken in December 2007 by John English Brigman (“Jeb”) of Conway. 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.”
