So what’s your pleasure? If the answer is seafood, you'll have the optimum number of restaurant choices. Seafood - fish, shrimp, oysters, crab, scallops, clams - is the main ingredient in coastal cuisine. Years ago, most all local seafood was breaded and deep-fried. Today, while fried seafood is still extremely popular, restaurant menus have beenRestaurantexpanded to include everything from Cajun-style cooking to nouvelle cuisine. Increasingly, chefs are rediscovering the treasure trove of regional ingredients (herbs, fruits and vegetables, etc.) and using these to create dishes with authentic local flavor. In addition, "fish of the day" offerings have expanded from the ever-popular filet of flounder to scrumptiously prepared mahi-mahi, swordfish, tuna, grouper, red snapper, salmon, and other selections. Standard side dishes such as baked potatoes and French fries now compete with flavor-packed sides such as garlic mashed potatoes, vegetable sauté, and assorted fresh breads.
While seafood is king on the local restaurant scene, other delicious fare can be found in abundance. Savor the flavors of Italy, Japan, Mexico, or China. Sink your teeth into a thick, juicy steak, grilled to perfection. Sit down at a sushi bar and sample one mouth-watering morsel after another. Whatever you're in the mood for, you're sure to find it on a Grand Strand menu.
The name Horry was first attached to the area now known as Horry County in 1801. Horry District was named after Brigadier General Peter Horry, a Revolutionary War hero whose portrait can be seen in the Horry County Museum. The first board of commissioners was charged with the responsibility of erecting a courthouse, goal, whipping post, stocks and pillory. Members of the board were: John Graham Sr., Samuel Foxworth, William Williams, Thomas Livingston, Robert Conway, William Hemingway, William Vereen, Thomas Fearwell and Samuel Floyd. The county's original courthouse was located on Fifth Avenue in 1802 and stood a mere 28x36 feet. It was replaced by what now serves as Conway's City Hall at the corner of Main Street and Third Avenue in 1824. The Robert Mills designed building cost $9,500, the highest rather than the lowest bid for construction.
When Horry County outgrew the second courthouse, the current structure dominating Third Avenue between Elm Street and Beaty Street was built with construction completed in 1908. The grand total for the original building without wings was $29,950.40. The current courthouse underwent renovations and additions in 1927, 1964 and 1982-83.
Horry District kept that name until the constrict of 1868 when it was changed to Horry County. When the Home Rule Act was passed in 1975, Horry County chose the Administrator/Council form of government. In January of 1978 the first County Council was seated with nine members elected at large. They served until March of 1979 due to litigation to determine the legality of single member districts. They returned to office in June 1979 and served until December 31, 1980.
