Featured Image: S.C. Hall of Fame
Located right here in Myrtle Beach at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center, is the South Carolina Hall of Fame honoring those “contemporary and past citizens who have made outstanding contributions to South Carolina’s heritage and progress.”
The museum was dedicated on February 11, 1973, by Governor John C. West, but was not made the state’s official Hall of Fame until September 21, 2001, when Governor John Hodges signed it into law.
The Confederation of South Carolina Local Historical Societies is the official organization for selecting nominees. Each year one contemporary and one deceased citizen are selected to be inducted into the Hall of Fame.
Inducted members come from all backgrounds including athletes, politicians, academics and prominent cultural figures. All of which made contributions to South Carolina and helped the Palmetto State become what it is today.
