The home has been lovingly restored, with care being taken to preserve the authentic period details. The docent was knowledgeable, and provided some interesting anecdotes about the family, the home, and what life might have been like for the residents. Well worth the $10 admission.

Great old house and very knowledgeable tour guide. There were some architectural features that were new to me. Nice antique furniture and a display of Beaufort history with a fabulous miniature of the downtown.

My husband and I had booked a horse drawn tour. So while we waited, we toured the Verdier House. Although it wasn't quite time for a guided tour to start. (They offer several a day at intervals through out the day. These are docent guided.). The docent on duty, because it was Fall and less busy, took us on the... More

Worth a stop. It is an unpretentious house museum, authentic and historically correct. It is on Bay Street, the main shopping street in Beaufort, and has both permanent and temporary exhibits. Go see the" Pat Conroy at 70" exhibit!

I love house tours and this one is very good. What makes it exceptional is Sandy who obviously loves her job. Her stories of the house and the people who lived there brought the place to life.

We very much enjoyed our tour of the Verdier House Museum. Our docent was very informative and her love of the house and its history was evident. The tour was well worth the $10 per person price of admission. I am so glad that the Beaufort Historic Foundation has been able to rescue and restore this fine old home. One... More

Considering saturation of historic homes in Beaufort, there just a couple to tour. A great tour presented amid a wee bit of chaos getting ready for a fundraiser. Not to be missed by any history buff. Lots of minute details sleuthing through the building looking for historic correctness. Thank you!

Very nice tour- the docent was excellent. Takes about an hour, historic house in downtown Beaufort. Not expensive. Good exhibits about local characters and history.

The Historic Beaufort Foundation has done a marvelous job in saving and restoring this early 1800s home. The tours are enjoyable and informative and the time spent, less than a half hour, is about right for an introduction to the house and the families that have owned it. I'm not much of a history buff, but was very glad we... More
