The Belle W. Baruch Foundation is a non-profit organization and owner of the over 16,000-acre wildlife refuge, Hobcaw Barony. Made as a royal land grant in 1718, it was eventually subdivided into 11 individual plantations. It became the home of Wall Street millionaire and presidential adviser, Bernard Baruch. Mr. Baruch's daughter, Belle, purchased all of the barony over a period of several years, and at her death a foundation was created to use the land for education and research.

  • It's a public display of the awesomeness of our area bordered by Winyah Bay and North Inlet the Barony contains a varied habitat for many native species. Tours are available but usually are booked out months in advance so plan accordingly. There is a great visitor center at the entrance with gifts, displays and info about the wildlife and history of this area.
  • Wonderful two hour introductory tour describing the history and rich natural environment of this area. Docents were knowledgeable and presented in a lively, interesting manner. Highly recommend if you’re looking for a fun, different activity with friends or family.
