Loris Area Real Estate
A lumber company out of Wilmington, N.C., called Chadbourn Lumber Co. working in the Horry County Forests were building rail lines for the railroad to take the logs into the North Carolina sawmills. The Chadbourn Brothers purchased land west from the railway, from a James G. Patterson on December 7, 1887, for a depot.
1902 the town was newly incorporated and Daniel J. Butler cheerfully accepted the post as First Mayor of the new township.
Loris may be quiet and unassuming, but Loris engineered one of the initial and grandest cotton markets within South Carolina.
Loris can also make another claim to fame in the healthcare industry. In May 1950, Loris Community Hospital made its welcomed debut to the area; and still today is growing and expanding in technology and size to accommodate all those in Horry County. Though the name has changed to McLeod Loris Seacoast, though our determination to do the very best to support the community has not. While McLeod Loris Seacoast being the largest employer in Loris, and with the surrounding economy being boosted by millions of dollars annually the city was growing at a rapid rate.
