This is a beautifully detailed, laser engraved and precision cut topographical Map of Little River in Horry County, South Carolina with the following interesting stats carved into it:
- Little River is one of the oldest settlements along the coast, with fishermen and farmers coming to stay in the late 1600s and 1700s. Its waterfront was instrumental in the development of timber and naval stores industry in South Carolina's early days.
- Indian tribes called the stream Mineola, meaning "little river"
Interesting factoids: The small protected harbor was a haven for shipwreck survivors and pirates, who needed a place for rest and repairs. The few settlers were forced to help pirates who demanded food and supplies, their weapons a persuasive factor. Names like Captain Kidd, Blackbeard, Stede Bonnette, Anne Bonney and others are part of the local lore. (Not all of this information made it onto the map, we just love to read up on the lakes we design).
