Blackville in Barnwell County, South Carolina — The American South (South Atlantic)
Barnwell County Courthouse
The county courthouse was on this site from 1871 to 1874. In 1869 Republican state senator Charles P. Leslie, a native of New York, sponsored an act to move the county seat from Barnwell to Blackville. Court was first held in a church until a two-story brick courthouse was built at a cost of $8000. After the county seat returned to Barnwell the courthouse housed Blackville Academy, later a public school.
Erected 2001 by The Barnwell County Council. (Marker Number 6-12.)
