This high bluff was called
Red Hill in the colonial
era. It overlooks Turkey
Creek, which flows into the
Great Salkehatchie River.
The Charleston-to-Augusta
road, along an old Indian
trail, crossed the creek
nearby. The waters of
Turkey Creek and White Oak
Springs, just north of this
site, were incentives for
the early settlement and
development of what would
later become Barnwell.

McHeath's Tavern, the first
business in what became
Barnwell, was built nearby
before the Revolution. The
town, a county seat since
1785 when Winton District
(later Barnwell District,
and then Barnwell County)
was created, was long
called Barnwell Court
House. Two cemeteries a
short distance east, both
established about 1800,
include the graves of some
of Barnwell's earliest
