Town of Varnville

Just 23 miles from Interstate 95, Varnville was originally known as "Dixie." One of the original founders of this quaint town was James Varn, who operated a saw mill. It was said that the aristocrats settled in Varnville.

The entire town was transformed and scenes from the major motion picture "Forrest Gump" were filmed in Varnville's town square. Many of the old buildings still line the town square including some which are on the National Register of Historic Places. The old post office has been transformed into a lovely coffee shop and sells gourmet coffee and other southern collectibles.

Palmetto trees line the main avenue through Varnville and a large white gazebo is the meeting place for many of the town's events. Nearby is Lake Warren State Park, which hosts the annual Watermelon Festival.
