The Horry County Museum presents a lecture and book signing by Christopher Boyle on April 23, 2016. Mr. Boyle will be speaking about his book Mansfield Plantation: A Legacy on the Black River. Mansfield Plantation was the ancestral home of the Man-Taylor-Lance-Parker family for over one hundred and fifty years. A hundred years after being sold out of the family’s possession, John and Sallie Middleton Parker have returned the property to the family bloodline. The new owners have gone to extraordinary measures to restore, preserve and share their family treasure.
The estate has several concurrently running projects which are designed to preserve Mansfield for future generations to explore, research and appreciate. As history fades, and historical landmarks disappear, Mansfield will remain as she has for nearly three centuries; an approachable yet elegant reminder of South Carolina’s plantation heritage.
The program begins at 1 pm in the McCown Auditorium located at 805 Main Street, Conway SC. This event is free and open to the public.
