Folks that used to go to Pawleys Island would ride the train to Georgetown. Then they crossed the Waccamaw River by ferry from Georgetown to Hagley Landing where they boarded a train for a two mile journey to Pawleys Island.

This railroad was known as the Georgetown-Pawley's Island Railroad (1902) and was owned by the Atlantic Coast Lumber Company. This made Pawleys Island a resort for the employees of the lumber company among others.
