MB home gets special recognition

Myrtle Beach, SC - MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – One historic home in Myrtle Beach will be recognized on June 30.

Kevin and Mary Cribb's home will receive its National Register of Historic Places plaque.

Their home is part of the Myrtle Heights-Oak Park neighborhood that was included in the National Register of Historic Places in 1998.  The 65-acre historic district is roughly along both sides of Ocean Boulevard, from 32nd to 46th Avenues North.

Most of the historic properties in the district are single-family homes dating from the 1920s through the 1940s.

Recently, a group of residents has been meeting to talk about expanding the district.  That group will meet in the First Floor Conference Room at City Hall at 12:30 p.m. on June 30.  Following the meeting, they will travel to the Cribbs' home for mounting of the National Register plaque at 2 p.m.

Other homes in the district eventually will acquire their own National Register plaques.  For more information, contact (843) 997-1499.
