South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Barnwell County Photos | Hilda
The small community of Hilda, located in Barnwell County, was founded in 1910 after growing up around the Atlantic Coast Line Depot that was built here in 1903. As the historical marker says below, Hilda was named for a friend or daughter of someone associated with the railroad.
Hilda is part of the “Sleytown” area of Barnwell County, which is used to describe the area between Buford’s Bridge, Hilda, and Denmark. It is said that residents used to make a meager living from selling hand looms or sleys to nearby communities.
