Lee Brockington: Women of the Waccamaw
Lecture, Museum, History/Science

The local author and historian Lee Brockington will give an overview of female leaders of the Waccamaw River region who built community, pioneered in agriculture and preserved thousands of acres in perpetuity. With a spotlight on about ten women, Brockington shares the surprising contributions of "the gentler sex.” Lee Gordon Brockington is a historian and educator on the Waccamaw Neck and is Senior Interpreter at Hobcaw Barony. She is editor of "Pawleys Island: Stories from the Porch," a collection of oral histories, and author of "Plantation Between the Waters: A Brief History of Hobcaw Barony" and "Images of Pawleys Island."
