Historical Landmarks

1. Historical Landmarks

With a rich history spanning over 500 years, the Beaufort area has no shortage of outstanding landmarks to visit and feed your inner, adventurous child. The conglomeration of  Spanish, English, French, and Native American people - all battling over this prime spot of American soil - has spawned endless, wild stories of victory, defeat, romance, fortune, perseverance, disappointment and triumph. For those visitors who have a passion for history or locals who want to play tourist in their own town for a weekend, get out and see the sites! Walking, buggy or bus tours are all available. Pick up your maps and learn pertinent information at the Visitors Center. Centrally located downtown at the historic armory and built in 1798, the Visitor’s Center is a great place to kick start your blast into the past!
