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.

Artist Trish Jones of Madison, Georgia found this barn charming enough to reproduce in a painting, seen below. The 12″x12″ depiction was created in acrylics on a wood panel. She tells us, “Just wanted you to see my interpretation of the beautiful Edgefield Cotton Barn.” Jones sells her art, including this piece, online and at art shows.

The best advice we can offer for this site specifically is to look at the map included on the page and try using something called GIS maps. What you do is go to Google, type in Edgefield County GIS lookup. Then click the link available and find the address via our map location and try to find the owner information through public tax records. Sorry we do not have direct information to share on the owner.

Great news! The barn is still there. I started teaching art in Johnston and Trenton this year and saw it through the field of peach trees which replaced the cotton field!

Trish, we LOVE your new painting! Thank you for sending it. We are so happy that through Robbie’s and your work, the old barn continues to live on, at least in memory.

Just uploaded a painting to your site that I created from this beautiful picture. (Hate that I clicked over here to find that the barn is gone. Ugh.)

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?

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. 🙂
