We attended a funeral here in the past and like to visit it from time to time. It is a very well kept military cemetery with a staff that is willing to help answer your question and fill you in on the history. I love the palmetto and oak trees.

No trip to Beaufort is complete without a visit to the Beaufort National Cemetery. One of the few national cemeteries, this one dates to the Civil War. The graves are neatly arrayed in an impressive pattern with appropriate landscaping. It is beautiful and sobering at the same time. Located on Boundary Street, it can be reached on foot from Bay Street or the waterfront, but it is a long walk.

One of the most beautiful national cemeteries in the country. I am a history enthusiast and love this kind of stuff, but I think many others appreciate its beauty as well. Must see if traveling to Beaufort or neighboring Hunting Island State Park.

We walked through the cemetery on a 10 K Volks walk through Beaufort (ava.org) and really found the beauty of the area to be a perfect resting place. My husband and I are both retired military and we stopped by the office. The staff is very helpful and now everything is ready when needed to make it easy for our family.

Originally visited on a Haunted Tour, went back and spent more time later. Has graves from 200 years ago through 50 years ago, with lots of stories to be told, and people of all ages and backgrounds. Can immerse yourself in it, spend hours putting all the family pieces together. Very interesting for a history buff, although some of the gravestones are getting a bit faded now.
