Long Description:

"The Pleasant Inn, built ca. 1927, is typical of Myrtle Beach boarding houses in that it features a low, two-story height; wood frame construction; tiered, two-story full facade porches; side stairway leading to upstairs entrance; and rentable rooms for boarders. Stylistic features displayed by the house are exposed rafter ends and gable vents. The rear porch was closed in on both floors prior to 1974. The inn is significant for its association with Myrtle Beach’s period of growth and prosperity as a coastal community resort from 1926 to 1954 and as an excellent example of residential properties commonly built in Myrtle Beach in the mid-twentieth century. It was one of a number of houses built during this time to accommodate permanent residents and boarders. It is one of the few remaining examples of the two-story boarding/guest houses that pre-dates Hurricane Hazel (1954) and before the beach became populated by high-rise resorts. The same family has owned the house since 1929. Listed in the National Register November 7, 1996." ~ South Carolina Department of Archives and History website
