Long before developers set out to make Myrtle Beach a golf retreat, enslaved Africans, brought from the Caribbean, were working the land and shaping American history. The Gullah-Geechee culture was born in and around Myrtle Beach and represents the customs, traditions, crafts and language of these people. Various heritage sites celebrate and preserve this unique culture. Travelers can visit Friendfield Village, a 19th century slave village at Hobcaw Barony, or experience Gullah-Geechee art and memorabilia at the Gulla O’ooman Shop and Museum. Discover the remarkable story of Gullah-Geechee and its influence on the Myrtle Beach community.
