South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Barnwell County Photos | First Baptist Church
General Sherman burned much of Blackville at the end of the Civil War, but the congregation of First Baptist Church, founded in 1846, continued to thrive. The church remains strong to this day and offers weekly services. It is a member of the Barnwell-Bamberg Baptist Association, a partnership of 38 Southern Baptist churches in or near Barnwell County.
