akelley@thesunnews.comJanuary 30, 2014 

Hike Hobcaw to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Belle W. Baruch Foundation.

The program kicks off Feb. 7 at 9 a.m. and will take visitors on a series of hiking outings at Hobcaw Barony that are too remote for regular tour busses.

Participants can explore the ruins of a 19th century brick rice mill and Barnyard Village, one of four former slave villages on the property that was once a part of Friendfield Plantation.

Senior Interpreter, Lee Brockington, will lead hike participants to the village, rice mill ruins, and a cemetery, while illustrating the rich history of this isolated part of the plantation.

The hike begins at 9:00am with a short bus trip to the site and concludes at 1:00pm. Dress for the weather and bring water, snacks or a bag lunch.

Registration is required by calling 546-4623. There is a $25 fee to participate in the hike.
