Barnwell used to be a pretty big town, but since the hospital closed down it's become a bit of a ghost town. There's honestly nothing to do, the jobs are lacking. The politics are absolutely ridiculous. But there will probably be a lot of houses for sale in the future, so there's that!

The town of Barnwell is full of friendly and kind people. The support that the city has for high school athletics is inspiring and heartwarming. The town has a feeling of home and a certain warmth that makes the town seem like you've lived there forever.
I like living here. I have so many memories here that I will nevér forget. The pool parties, neighborhood crime watch and much more. All the neighbors stay to theirselves andonly intervine if they have too. Yes, I will live in this neighborhood again if I had to do it all over again. I really lovemy area where i live. The area live in would be ranked 90%. I see my neighborhood building more houses and a playground for the kids.
