People began to settle here in the early 1800s and Barnwell was called “Red Hill” until it was incorporated in 1829. Back then, the town’s limits radiated just a three-quarters of a mile from the Barnwell County Courthouse, which is still considered the heart of the city.

The sign above sports a miniature replica of Barnwell’s famous sundial. The actual sundial is located in front of the county courthouse on Main Street. It was a gift to the city in 1858 from state senator J.D. Allen. The sundial is one-of-a-kind and still keeps nearly perfect time after all these years.
