NMB’s Historic Preservation Society races to save last relic dunes




North Myrtle Beach’s Ingram Dunes are home to 9.4 acres of coastal maritime forest and ancient relic dunes that rise 50 feet above sea level: the last relic dunes remaining on the Grand Strand and the highest left on the coast of South Carolina. This final piece of a once mighty dune system is a sanctuary to hundreds of live oaks, plants, and animals. For thousands of years the dunes remained virtually untouched, but today the Ingram Dunes are in danger of total destruction.

Because of a matching grant from S.C., the group has been given only a few months to raise matching dollars or lose the grant and the dunes entirely to real estate developers.
