Tobacco Barn – Marion County, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Marion County Photos | Tobacco Barn
This rustic tobacco barn in a Marion County field is the basic, typical design of the old flu-cured tobacco barn. The barn would have multiple tiers inside for the drying tobacco to be hung from.
This barn is on a farm near the Smithboro community about five miles outside of Mullins. Many of the old tobacco barns have been left to rot away slowly or have been torn down, but some have been saved and converted into usable buildings and even into homes.
Many thanks to George Smith of Mullins for providing this picture and historical information.
