The Baruchs of Hobcaw

As a part of the Pawleys Island Festival of Music and Art, the Tara Theater at Litchfield Beach & Golf will present a movie this evening (Tuesday, Oct 2) all about the Baruchs of Hobcaw, the preserved estate right next door to DeBordieu.

According to the festival website, ” The Baruchs of Hobcaw is the epic story of an extraordinary family who left the state of South Carolina an enormous gift – Hobcaw Barony, a 17,500 acre nature preserve on the Waccamaw Neck near Georgetown. Bernard Mannes Baruch was one of the most famous and influential Americans of the first half of the 20th century. A South Carolina native, he purchased Hobcaw Barony as a winter home in 1905. He and his wife, Annie Griffen Baruch, had three children, but their oldest daughter, Belle, was Hobcaw’s greatest champion. Belle grew up spending winter vacations at Hobcaw and eventually bought the property from her father. At a time when environmentalism was a nascent concept, she created the Belle W. Baruch Foundation in her will, preserving Hobcaw for education, research and the people of South Carolina.”

The show starts at 7:00, admission is free. Reservations are suggested, 843-626-8911. Donations accepted.
