Verdier House

40. Verdier House

The verdier House has a rich and varied history including, anecdotally, as a stop on the Marquis de Lafayette's Southern tour in 1825. It was the Federal Headquarters during the Civil War and the site of the first telephone company in Beaufort.

A local landmark since 1804 when it was built by John Mark Verdier, the house typified Beaufort's gracious antebellum architectural style. It was a focal point of the town, a visible statement reflecting Verdier's significant wealth from trading indigo and growing sea island cotton. The beautiful federal-style house emphasized his rise from merchant status to a member of the planter elite.

Docent-guided house tours and traveling exhibits are available to the public.
