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.

  • Very interesting - knowledgeable guide made history come alive!
  • I went to a fundraiser for a local Museum at Hobcaw Barony. It was a beautiful setting. It is down by a river and has a beautiful screened-in room that was easy to sit in and eat food. We had been at the same fundraiser at a different location the year before, and this was a much better place. It would be great for weddings as it is very scenic. I haven't been there just to visit it normally, but it worked wonderfully for a function.
