America's Newspapers welcomes two new members


America's Newspapers is honored to welcome The People-Sentinel in Barnwell, South Carolina, and into membership!

The People-Sentinel has quite a story to tell as Barnwell County’s oldest business.

The newspaper dates back to 1852 when The (Barnwell) Palmetto Sentinel was established by E. A. Bronson. In 1925 it merged with the Barnwell People, which began publication in 1877 after its founding by Major John W. Holmes. The Williston Way, which was founded in 1921, later consolidated into the present newspaper.

The People-Sentinel has had many owners throughout its history, including local residents and large corporations. The paper is currently owned by Barnwell native Jonathan Vickery who purchased the newspaper in July 2021 from Gannett Media, and also serves as publisher.

It is published weekly on Wednesdays.
