Lake Murray Country founding fathers honored – Large portraits of Charlie Higgins, owner of Holland’s Landing on the Newberry County shoreline of Lake Murray and the late Bobby Long of Silverstreet, will forever watch over the organization they founded 30 years ago for the specific purpose of developing and promoting economic growth of the Lake Murray Region. Ms. Miriam Atria, president/CEO of Capital City/Lake Murray Country, whom the two founding gathers hired shortly after their proposal was approved, unveiled their portraits before an audience of special guests, including former board members following a meal at the Historic Lorick Plantation House near the dam, headquarters of the organization. Ms. Atria said the two local businessmen “petitioned the South Carolina Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism for funds to form an organization to promote tourism and recreational activities in the four counties surrounding Lake Murray.”
