The Blackville Train Depot was constructed in the early 1900s, and newly renovated in 2005. It once sat next to the now demolished courthouse on West Main Street, and was moved to its current location on Solomon Blatt Avenue in 1985. The depot is now home to the Blackville Library.
The small town of Blackville is located along the SC Heritage Corridor. A popular stop for visitors is the Region 3 Discovery Center which has hands-on features highlighting the region’s connection to the railroad and agricultural industries. God’s Acre Healing Springs, a legendary artesian well, is also a neat place to visit.
