Not a large house to look round but a wealth of history and an amazingly knowledgeable guide to take you through. I am not generally a fan of history, but our guide made this fascinating and thoroughly enjoyable. Well worth a visit.

We took a tour that was given by the Historic Beaufort Foundation and was pleasantly surprised to see this home has been preserved with all of it's original design and materials. It was wonderful to see that a home of this stature will be kept for future generations to enjoy.

A small glimpse into the past. Knowledgeable docents will give you a tour of this historic home and answer your questions. They also have a wonderful diorama of the historic homes to help put it all in perspective. Also a display on Robert Smalls an historic figure we should all know more about.

We had a fantastic visit and tour of the house. It has been re-done to as it was in 1803, the right paint colors, etc. not full of antiques, but more in the way it really was, which is great to see. Our tour guide was amazing. She had great stories about the people, place, the house, the area, and... More

This was an excellent way to spend 45 minutes. We were given a personal tour of the House and its History. The Preservation Society have done a great job in recreating the House and maintaining its authenticity. There was a well conducted tour with a friendly guide and it felt like a personal insight into a House that had seen... More

The house is not nearly as interesting as the story of it being the center piece of the Historic Beaufort Association. Thank goodness for a group of people interested in preserving the history of this 300 year old tow.

Have you ever wondered as you drive by of the history of the houses, or simply questioned, when was that house built this is your chance.
