Hobcaw Barony is a 16,000 acre tract on a peninsula called Waccamaw Neck between Winyah Bay and the Atlantic Ocean in George County, South Carolina.  The land was purchased by Bernard Baruch between 1905 and 1907 for a winter hunting retreat.  Later, his eldest child, Belle W Baruch, began purchasing the property from her father beginning in 1936.  By 1956, Belle owned Hobcaw Barony entirely. Upon her death in 1964, the property was transferred to the Belle Baruch Foundation for a nature and research preserve.  The property includes more than 37 historic buildings and structures representative of the eras of both 18th & 19th century rice cultivation and 20th century winter retreats. Hobcaw Barony was named to the National Register of Historic Places on November 2, 1994.

The Belle W. Baruch Foundation and the North Inlet-Winyah Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve jointly operate the Hobcaw Barony Discovery Center and provide tours and special programs.
