Built by Charles C "Carl" Cheek in early1944 with the assistance of German Prisonersof War who helped draw up the plan andworked on the construction.

This police station was first used as a guard house at the prisoner of war camp where theAllendale and Barnwell Counties Disabilitiesand Special Needs Board is Now Located at the Corner of Hagood and Park Street.

After the War when the camp was dismantled, the building was moved to the circle to serveas a police station. Many "interesting" conversations took place between senatorEdgar Brown and Speaker of the House SolomonBlatt while sitting on the bench in front ofthe station.

The old Barnwell Police Station was Given to the Barnwell County Museum in Memory of the Ashley Twins, Clarice and Ethel, by their sister, Carrie Gene Ashley.
