Conway is one of the oldest towns in South Carolina. Home to Coastal Carolina University it was founded in in 1732 as part of the Royal Governor Robert Johnson’s Township and named “Kings Town” but soon changed to “Kingston”. After the American Revolution the county’s name was changed to Horry (pronounced oh-ree) to honor General Horry and the Kingston court house was established. Kingston was renamed “Conwayborough” for General Robert Conway and then shortened to “Conway” by the General Assembly in 1883. 

Conway is a historic town with mature landscaping and beautiful scenery; from the Waccamaw River to the abundance of trees there is nothing not to love about Conway. Numerous buildings and structures throughout the 

city are on the National Register of Historic Places which gives the town an old world feel. In the 1980’s Conway’s Downtown area was revitalized by the Main Street USA project. The Riverwalk, has fine dining, and a delightful boardwalk right on the Waccamaw River.
