17,500 acre environmental research reserve located on 11 former plantations and includes an amazingly preserved slave village

Now a 17,500 acre research reserve, Hobcaw Barony is one of the few undeveloped tracts on the Waccamaw Neck. Bernard Baruch, Wall Street financier and advisor to presidents, purchased the property comprised of 11 former plantations in 1905 for use as a hunting retreat. Belle Baruch eventually bought the property from her father and at her death in 1964 she created a private foundation for college level research. The property is available by guided tours only, where you can choose to explore anything from the amazing wildlife and nature here to the Baruch home, the beautifully preserved Friendfield slave village and many other outlying historic structures. Make sure to start your visit at the Discovery Center that features exhibits on ecology, history and the significant biological research done at Hobcaw.
