Between the Waters: Hobcaw Barony Website Project

Implementation of a website, an interactive virtual tour, and supporting programs interpreting the natural and social history of Hobcaw Barony, the South Carolina estate of Bernard Baruch.

"Between the Waters" is a website and interactive virtual tour that will showcase the culture and history of Hobcaw Barony, a 17,500 acre historic site in Georgetown, South Carolina, which is arguably the setting for a greater confluence of humanities themes than any other in the state. Using the website's artifacts, structures and landmarks as storytelling cues, "Between the Waters" will connect material culture to the lives of those who inhabited Hobcaw and interpret their history for the general public. The non-linear navigation of "Between the Waters" will encourage inquiry, analysis and deductive reasoning, giving visitors the skills and incentive to explore and reflect upon the multifaceted story of Hobcaw Barony, how it has helped to shape the American present and its implications for the future of South Carolina and the country.
