NCO Open Mess


This is the site of building 120, the former Non-Commissioned Officers Open Mess.

The NCO Open Mess provided enlisted members a place to go to socialize and relax. The club featured a modern, well decorated ballroom and cocktail lounge, as well as an intimate dining room. It was located near the dormitory complex.

Live entertainment was offered by the club several times a week, with a variety to satisfy all tastes. Membership was open to all enlisted personnel.

The building is now a conference center owned and operated by Horry-Georgetown Technical College.
