Horry County to Request Funding for Charlie’s Place

By Marissa Tansino, WMBF

The location where Charlie’s Place used to be could soon be brought back to life with federal funding it anticipates receiving to reconstruct the area.

According to a post on Myrtle Beach City Government’s Facebook page, Horry County plans to submit a request to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for the release of funds to begin redeveloping Charlie’s Place.

The Myrtle Beach Jazz Festival is held on Carver Street around the same area where Charlie’s Place is located. Mickey James, president of the Myrtle Beach Jazz Festival, said Charlie’s Place brings back memories for people who actually lived that legacy, and having the festival here is a huge part of helping them relive that experience.

“I think the city’s done a wonderful job,” said James. “It’s got a lot of energy and a lot of vitality so I think it’s going to be a wonderful project.”
