Earlier this month, I visited our sister cultural agency, the Beaufort History Museum, located in Beaufort City Hall.
Designed to showcase the collection of historic artifacts that belong to the City originally housed in the now defunct Beaufort Museum, the Beaufort History Museum is like a survey course on Beaufort history, with a sampling of a little bit of quite a lot — from arrow points that are evidence of the first technology, ca 8000 BC, to a picture of Beaufort taken from space in this century. Not to mention a few artifacts from the intervening years.
As Larry Rowland says, “All American history begins in Beaufort.” Go visit and see why. It's free to all visitors until June 30th! Active military and their families get a special deal - free admission between Memorial Day and Labor Day because Beaufort History Museum participates in the Blue Star Museum program.
Hours of operation are 10-4, Tuesday-Thursday & 1-4 Sunday.
