Williston Cotton Gin – Williston, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Barnwell County Photos | Williston Cotton Gin
The Williston Cotton Gin rises over the rural landscape of Williston as a reminder of our state’s cotton farming industry. The town of Williston, located in Barnwell County, was officially founded in 1858.
By that time, it had already been an important stop on the railroad running from Charleston to Hamburg (near present-day Augusta) for 25 years. Its proximity to the railroad allowed its cotton industry to flourish, and this gin was open for over a century.
