The Home Movies of South Carolina Film Collection consists of seven 16mm films which mainly depict everyday life in South Carolina, however one film is labeled Saluda, NC.

They appear to have been filmed in Myrtle Beach, SC and possibly Lancaster, SC but it is unclear where (and when) most of them were shot.
