Seagate Village in Myrtle Beach turns 20

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WBTW) — Seagate Village, a local neighborhood of 800 homes, celebrated its 20th anniversary on Saturday in Myrtle Beach, according to an announcement from the Myrtle Beach City Government.

Dozens of residents gathered in honor of this special occasion.

Among those present was Pat James, 91, one of the first Seagate Village residents to live there since the early 2000s, the Facebook post said.

In the 1950s, the neighborhood began as Woodside Park and was used as housing for married officers and non-commissioned officers as part of Myrtle Beach Air Force Base, MBCG said.

The houses were renovated and renamed Seagate Village after the base closed in 1993.
