| 4 min read

Barnwell got its name from John Barnwell, the Revolutionary War leader who served in the South Carolina Senate after the war. A relatively small town with less than 5,000 residents, Barnwell is known for its recreational activities and historical landmarks. The town is surrounded by forests, rivers and lakes. Examples include Lake Edgar Brown, the Savannah River and Edisto River, which is the longest free-flowing blackwater river in North America. This provides opportunities for water activities like fishing, canoeing and kayaking. Barnwell also has a number of historical landmarks, from the vertical free-standing sundial given to the town in 1858 to Saint Andrew’s Catholic Church, the oldest original Catholic church in South Carolina. If Barnwell is within your sights for your next adventure, check out these 10 lovely Airbnb vacation rentals which promise a comfortable stay throughout.
