1. Nance Plaza Marker
Inscription. In honor of Daniel Wayne Nance and Mary Ellen Todd Nance for their significant contributions to Myrtle Beach’s early civic, business and religious growth.

A master builder, Daniel Wayne Nance was responsible for many downtown buildings near this plaza, as well as historic homes on North Ocean Boulevard and in the Withers Swash neighborhood. He served on the Committee that successfully sought incorporation for the city in the late 1930s. Together, the Nances raised 10 children and were dedicated members of First Baptist Church. A favorite expression was, “Give to the world the best that you have, and the best will come back to you.” Their descendants remain active in the community today.
