Museum Matinee: The Baruchs of Hobcaw
Conway’s Horry County Museum Documentary Film Series continues with The Baruchs of Hobcaw April 11 at 1 p.m. as part of the Carolina Stories Series by SCETV. In 1718, 17,500 acres of pristine land in Georgetown County became a colonial land grant, or barony, from the King of England to one of the Lords Proprietors. The Native Americans called it “hobcaw,” meaning between the waters. This film tells the story of the Baruchs and Hobcaw Barony, which is today home to USC’s Baruch Marine Field Laboratory and Clemson’s Belle W. Baruch Institute of Coastal Ecology and Forest Science.
