Efforts continue to save and preserve Ingram Dunes

NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) -- The Ingram Dunes is one of the largest undeveloped areas in North Myrtle Beach and like much of Horry County it is at risk of being developed. However, some still believe there’s hope to save the iconic dunes from becoming another developed plot of land.

For several years’ residents in North Myrtle Beach and throughout the Grand Strand have come together to do whatever they can to preserve Ingram Dunes.

They said it’s not just about preserving the natural beauty, but the memories that come with it.

“This kind of landscape is what drew people to the beach in the first place, they didn’t come here for housing developments they came for the natural beauty,” said Jane Vernon.

Jane Vernon has memories of Ingram Dunes going back nearly 60 years, a place her family vacationed and a place she now calls home.
