(1899 - 1964)

Belle Wilcox Baruch, with great love and foresight for Hobcaw Barony, provided a plan that enables generations of people to understand and learn from Hobcaw's forests, marshes, and beaches.

In 1936, Bellefield Plantation became Belle's winter home. Here she enjoyed horseback riding, flying and the natural beauty of the property. Her appreciation developed into a strong obligation to see that Hobcaw's resources be maintained and protected. Through her will, Belle established the Belle W. Baruch Foundation which owns and operates the property for the purposes of research and teaching in forestry, wildlife ecology, and marine biology.

Belle Baruch's commitment has preserved the unique environment of Hobcaw Barony.
