The "Whispering Pines" of Charlie's Place

The "Whispering Pines" of Charlie's Place

Myrtle Beach, S.C.

The nightclub is gone, but this is where it stood on Carver Street in Myrtle Beach, S.C. The old saying goes that when Billie Holiday sang at Charlie's Place, the pine trees above—fanned by a gentle ocean breeze—whispered along with the music. To this day, that patch of trees on Carver Street is called Whispering Pines.
