Given that Beaufort NC is the third oldest city in NC with a very unique and rich culture, it is no wonder that many of the residences in this town have homes that were built as early as the 1700s and early 1800s. Many of these residences are the focal point of many guided tours and self-paced walking tours in the area, along with many ghost walk tours.

In our opinion, the best time to take all of this history in is in the Spring when the azaleas and wisteria are in bloom offering a truly southern hospitality look and feel.

Most of these historical markers are located on Ann St, Broad St, Turner St, and Front St near the waterfront area in town. The Beaufort Historical Association is located at 130 Turner St, Beaufort, NC 28516. Their phone number and contact information is (252) 728-5225.

    I visited Beaufort last summer and noticed that the town pays a lot of attention to history and that is a good thing. Between these old homes and the local museum I visited the town seems to celebrate it’s historical roots. You don’t really see that much anymore.

    Beaufort is unlike any other town in North Carolina. It is like a mini Charleston SC with the historical perspective centered around it’s old homes, appreciation of the arts and has it’s own culture. Definitely the best time to take this city in is the Spring when the flowers are blooming and people open their homes for tours. When the music festival is playing is also a good time to get a feel for this town.

      Shanna, much of the credit that goes in to what you just described belongs to the Beaufort Historical Society and their robust attention to preservation of these homes and their appearances. I would even say the association plays a big part in the whole town being focused on preservation.

      The oldest home is the Russell House and it was built in 1732.
