Hobcaw Barony is a 17,500-acre wildlife refuge owned and operated by Belle W. Baruch Foundation, a non-profit organization. Made as a royal land grant in 1718, Hobcaw Barony was eventually subdivided into 14 individual plantations. It became the winter residence 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 the "purposes of teaching and/or research in forestry, marine biology, and the care and propagation of wildlife, flora and fauna in connection with colleges and/or universities in the state of South Carolina."
