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.

Hi Vicki! We actually have an entire photo gallery devoted to South Carolina barns:

The first barn in the gallery is located near Jedburg, which is very close to Summerville. I’m sure you’ll find others to check out as well. Happy exploring!

I love old barns! Just moved here from a Pacific Coast state and love what I see here! Any suggestions on where to see more barns near Summerville? I’m using photos of barns as home decor. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!
