This community, settled before 1800, was named "Pumpkin Town" by an anonymous early traveler awed by the sight of the Oolenoy Valley covered with huge yellow pumpkins. It and Pickens Court House (Old Pickens) were the only two towns in present-day Pickens County in 1791. The same tourists who visited nearby Table Rock Mtn. often stayed at William Sutherland's inn at Pumpkintown.
