Edgefield Cotton Barn – Edgefield, South Carolina


South Carolina  |  SC Picture Project  |  Edgefield County Photos  |  Edgefield Cotton Barn

In this scene, a cotton field and colorful barn near Edgefield remind us of an industry that was once one of the largest in South Carolina. Sadly, the barn was torn down a few years ago and a grove of peaches now stand where the cotton once grew.

Hi, Denise. Please feel free to paint the barn. I actually took the photo to paint myself, but haven’t gotten around to it. (Maybe when I retire! LOL) I’d love to see it when you’re done! I am the Tourism Program Coordinator for Aiken County and operate the Visitor Center in Aiken, 113 Laurens St. SW. Happy Painting!

Robbie, I live in Aiken and I am an amateur oil painter. (I am a student of Julie Adams @ The Studio on Laurens). Anyway, I saw your photo on Pinterest and I would really enjoy painting it. I don’t paint to sell, but do display one time a year. If I paint this you would get the credit for the photo. May I have a copy of this photo?

Thanks.

Robbie, we are so sorry to hear that, and we are SO GRATEFUL to you for taking this picture before it was torn down and for sharing it with the people of South Carolina. This is exactly the purpose of the SC Picture Project – to preserve our vanishing landmarks and landscapes. Thank you again! We are all so lucky to have this photo in the gallery.

The barn was torn down a few years ago and a grove of peaches now stand where the cotton once grew. That picture is just about as southern as it gets. :)
