A Little About Our Town

image50

Blackville is located in Barnwell County, along the SC Heritage Corridor. Visitors may enjoy the Region 3 Discovery Center, with hands-on features highlighting the region's connection to the railroad and agricultural industries and giving a historical background on Bamberg, Barnwell, Orangeburg, and Aiken Counties. Driving through the rural town will take you past corn fields, pastures, and barns. Right off the main road you will find an artesian well, God's Acre Healing Springs, where locals and tourists stop to fill their water bottles. Blackville is also home to a small Mennonite community. One of the Mennonite families runs Miller's Bread Basket, a popular restaurant on Blackville's Main Street.
