Situated approximately five miles from the North Carolina/South Carolina border, the small community of Loris was founded in 1902. It began as a railroad town, as the timber and turpentine industries grew in the area. Today, Loris is a quiet community, with a quaint downtown area, and is home to the annual Loris Bog-Off Festival in the Fall, featuring a popular South Carolina dish called Chicken Bog, consisting of rice, chicken, sausage, and seasonings, and the loris Spring Festival and Outdoor Expo, featuring flower sales and a farmer’s market. Loris boasts great schools, which have been recognized statewide, and are part of the Horry County School System.
Loris is also home to McCleod Loris, which features 105 Inpatient beds, and state-of-the-art medical hospital facilities. Loris is 23 miles from the coast, so it’s perfect for quiet, family living while still close to attractions and beaches along the coast of the Grand Strand. If you are looking for a traditional suburban neighborhood, golf course living, or farm acreage in a community with a healthy economy and friendly people, Loris is a perfect place to raise a family.
