Hobcaw Barony Wildlife Refuge

Hobcaw Barony Visitor Center
FAVORITE: Hobcaw Barony, a natural preserve and wildlife refuge, is also the winter residence of presidential advisor and Wall Street millionaire Bernard M. Baruch. Open to the public through guided tours, you see the 13,500 sq. ft. mansion he called home and where he hosted such visitors as President Franklin D. Roosevelt and Sir Winston Churchill. Other stops in the 17,500-acre refuge include the grounds and stables of Bellefield Plantation, a ride through the only existing slave street left on the Waccamaw Neck, and a stroll along a salt marsh boardwalk. The Visitors Center features a small nature/history museum with two alligators, a saltwater touch tank, a touch table, videos and many other exhibits to entertain adults and children. Ask about Kayak tours. Please call for more information.
