Landgrave Edmund Bellinger Award

There were two titles of nobility outlined in the plan of government for Colonial Carolina- “Landgrave” and “Cassigue”. A landgrave would have owned 48,000 acres of land, so the Landgrave Edmund Bellinger Award is named for Landgrave Edmund Bellinger who owned most of the property between the Ashepoo and Combahee Rivers. Some of his descendants are still living in our county. This award exemplifies “plantation preservation” at its best.

Preservation Awards Nominations will be accepted until June 1st via email at info@cchaps, mail to 205 Church St., Walterboro, SC 29488 or call the office at 843-549-9633. There are several different categories for nominations.
