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.
