The house was very nice. The docent was very knowledgeable and very enthusiastic. The house is not fully furnished, but there are period pieces in the downstairs rooms. It is a great house to see the detailed woodwork and fireplaces of the time. It is...More

The only antebellum home in public hands in Beaufort. The diorama is instructive, the docent was beyond superb and the house tells its story to you. If you are in Beaufort and want to learn about how those folks lived, this is a must.

This lovely historic house was recovered and reconstructed in the 1940's. Period pieces and mini history lessons are abundant, and for the low admission price, you get a guided tour. I had walked by this museum house several times without realizing that it was open...More
