The Early History of Hobcaw

February 15, 2017 - Posted in Carolina Stories by R. Dymock

Hobcaw Barony, known to Native Americans as “Between the Waters,” has a rich past. Although Hobcaw is best known for the Baruch family and their many wealthy and well-known visitors,  the 20th century is only a small part of Hobcaw’s story.  For most of its history, the majority of people here were Native Americans, Africans and African Americans. Leland Ferguson, Professor Emeritus of Anthropology at the University of South Carolina, discusses the impact this early history had, and still has today, on the land between the waters.
