How did Myrtle Beach get its name

A question I get asked all the time; How did Myrtle Beach Get Its Name? Watch this video and you'll learn a little bit of Myrtle beach history. The earlier name for Myrtle Beach was New Town at the turn of the century. The Burroughs and Collins Company of Conway had purchased much of land in the area around 1881. In 1900, a contest was held to give the area an official name, and Addie Burroughs, widow of Franklin G. Burroughs, suggested Myrtle Beach because of the wax myrtle bushes growing abundantly here. That's when Myrtle Beach became Myrtle Beach. The first Myrtle Beach post office was built in the early 1900s. Myrtle Beach became an official town in 1938, when it incorporated, and a city in 1957.
