THE FIELDS OF RICE - HOBCAW BARONY, PAWLEY'S ISLAND & LITCHFIELD

Enjoy 250 years of Low Country history from the earliest settlement to today. Learn how Indians, Rice and Salt shaped the Low Country scenery and society. Hobcaw Barony’s 16,000 acres of history and ecology is a privately-owned research reserve that represents every environment and century in the Low Country. Naval stores, indigo, and rice production ended by 1905 when the land was purchased by Bernard Baruch. A native South Carolinian and Wall Street financier, he and other millionaires hunted ducks, deer and wild turkeys on this winter retreat. This adventure includes a tour inside the 1930s home that played host to politicians, generals and newspapermen as well as Winston Churchill and President Franklin Roosevelt.

In Addition to Hobcaw House, the tour includes a drive by Bellefield Plantation and stables, the home of Belle Baruch who owned the property by 1956, and a drive through Friendfield Village, the last 19th century village on the Waccamaw Neck. You will also learn about the coastal ecosystems, native wildlife and endangered species.
Next, it’s on to Pawley’s Island Hammock Shops for lunch and a bit of shopping, followed by a tour of the Main Island.

The first European Settlement of Pawley’s Island came in the early 1700’s, when land grants ran from the River to the Beaches. The Plantation Owners and their families quickly developed the custom of fleeing to the beautiful beaches of Pawley’s Island in late Spring which allowed the area to grow and develop into one of the oldest resort destinations in the nation.

The Island’s Historic District boasts housing dating from the mid 1800’s, all rich with interesting tales of love and loss and some of the most famous and fascinating Ghost Stories of the Low country.
