Waccamaw River



The Waccamaw River has provided a freshwater lifeline for settlement in the coastal region of the Georgetown area for thousands of years. The name of the river is derived from the tribe of Native Americans that used it for transportation, irrigation, and food. The river remains a vital natural resource for those that live in the region today. In this clip, Stewart Pabst, the Executive Director of the Horry County Museum, speaks of the river's historical significance, and its growing draw as a recreational destination for boating and fishing.
