Lee Brockington’s History of Hobcaw

Lee BrockingtonRight next door to DeBordieu, local author, historian and Senior Interpreter at Hobcaw Barony, Lee Brockington, embodies true southern hospitality. Georgetown County, SC  is lucky to have her.

Author of several books, including Pawleys Island: A Century of History and Photographs, her descriptions and accounts of life on the island are spot on.  One can literally see the vintage dresses and smell the fresh fried flounder in their minds.

Brockington is also the author of Plantation Between the Waters: A Brief History of Hobcaw Barony, and in this publication, she brings to life the fascinating history of Hobcaw Barony in remarkable clarity. The book provides a glimpse into the lives of the people who have been connected to this unspoiled landscape for generations.

The book on Pawleys Island is out of print and has limited availability, but the book on Hobcaw is available on www.Amazon.com, or in the gift shop at the Discovery Center.

Plantation Between the WatersI’ve enjoyed giving the books to some of my real estate clients as closing gifts. They would make wonderful Christmas presents to anyone who lives or visits DeBordieu or Pawleys Island.

DeBordieu Colony is a very private community on the coast of South Carolina, between Charleston and Myrtle Beach, just south of Pawleys Island. In addition to miles of secluded beach, boat landing access to North Inlet, and a 24-hour manned security gate, the private, equity DeBordieu Club offers Pete Dye golf, a tennis center and an ocean front Beach Club with fine dining, a gazebo bar, two pools, and a playground. There is truly no place like DeBordieu. Come see for yourself.
