Burroughs School, also known as Burroughs Graded School, is a historic school located at Conway in Horry County, South Carolina.[2] It was built in three phases between 1905 and 1923. The earliest portion of the building was built as an elementary school and has three main portions of eleven bays. It features a one-story, hip roof porch supported by six Ionic order columns with Scamozzi capitals. About 1915 a two-story hipped classroom wing was added and in 1923 four classrooms and an auditorium was added to the complex.[3]

In 2014 the Horry County Museum moved into the renovated building from its former location in the historic Conway Post Office building.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.[1]
