beaufort was spared from the destruction of the civil, as the north took immediate control of the town. take a tour and learn the unique history of these beautiful homes. see where "the big chill" and "the great santini" were filmed along with many other movies.

Strolling through the streets of the Beaufort's Point district was serene and lovely, both the old homes and the views over the vast marshes and water.

Over the years we’ve toured The Point by carriage, by car, and on foot, and we never grow tired of it. Don’t visit Beaufort without treating yourself to one of the better collections of historic homes in this part of the country. The waterfront scenery isn’t bad either. Bring your camera.

I spend a lot of time in the point throughout the year. The homes are amazing, the scenery breathtaking, and the quiet welcoming. There are so many secret places to find so I suggest walking around.

This was not our first stroll through the point and won't be our last. Love the live oaks. We actually enjoy the cottages more than the mansions.

Horse, bus and walking tours can take you through this treasure land of Antebellum architecture, or you can stop by the Visitors' Center for a self-guided walking map. Part of the charm lies in the huge live oaks with their drapes of Spanish moss. Be sure to complement this tour with a walk up and back down historic Bay Street... More

Great houses, nice walks or bikings, great gardens. Being a private area I would recommend to be sure you do not trespass...
