The airport was built by the United States Army Air Forces and opened in May 1943. Barnwell Army Airfield was a satellite airfield of Columbia Army Air Base, supporting B-25 Mitchell medium bomber training for Third Air Force III Air Support Command. Training was accomplished by 44th Station Complement Squadron which also maintained the facility. After the war, the airfield was turned over to local authorities which converted it into a civil airport.
