  • Venue: Hobcaw Barony
  • Address: 22 Hobcaw Road, Georgetown, SC

This two hour bus tour requires little walking and includes highlights of Hobcaw Barony’s 16,000 acres of history and ecology. A privately owned research reserve, the property represents every environment and century of the lowcountry. The bus stops for a tour inside Bernard Baruch’s c.1930 home that played host to politicians, generals and newspapermen as well as Winston Churchill and President Franklin Roosevelt.

In addition to Hobcaw House, tours include a drive by the home and stables of Bellefield Plantation, the home of Mr. Baruch’s oldest daughter Belle Baruch who owned all the property by 1956 and Friendfield Village, the last 19th century slave village on the Waccamaw Neck. We share information on coastal ecosystems, native wildlife and endangered species. *Registration is required. Tuesday - Saturday times very
