Horry County’s first courthouse was constructed in the early 1800s. It served the county until 1825, when a new courthouse was completed on Main Street. This second courthouse was designed by noted Charleston architect Robert Mills in the popular Greek Revival style. Although it now serves as Conway’s City Hall, locals still refer to it as the “Old Courthouse.”

The current courthouse (pictured here) was built during Conway’s most significant period of growth. Many of the oak trees on the courthouse grounds were planted by L.W. Brown, who served as Clerk of Court from 1909 to 1927. The courthouse has been renovated several times; the east and west wings were added in 1964.

Was actually married in the courthouse on May 10, 1974. Don’t know if it was a usual thing for folks to be married inside the courthouse,or if my bride and I just looked around in the building for someone who could perform the ceremony when we went by that day to pick up our license. We were married in the evening, I guess about 4 to 4:30, on that Friday evening, and it seems that an older lady who worked there, performed the ceremony after perhaps scrambling to find a witness. What a wonderful memory it was and is for me, though!
