Conway Town Clock – Horry County, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Horry County Photos | Conway Town Clock
The Conway Town Clock was designed by W.H. Winborne, master cabinetmaker of Conway. The purchase was authorized by Town Council on July 11, 1939 and was built over a three month period.
The tower was constructed of local black jack cypress purchased from the Conway Lumber Company. The Seth Thomas works cost $750.00 and were installed just before Thanksgiving 1939. There are no records of a dedication ceremony. (Source: The Independent Republic Quarterly, VOl 13, 1979. Pg 25)
SCIWAY thanks Hillary Winburn of Conway who took this picture in November 2007.
Greg Richardson of Conway wrote to SCIWAY in September of 2007 to tell us that the “City of Conway just completed restoration of the clock and we held a ceremony to honor the families of the original supporters.”
