The Historic District of Beaufort is on the National Register of Historic
Places and boasts more than a hundred historic homes, with plaques bearing
names and dates of construction. Within the historic district is the
Beaufort Historic Site.
This two acre complex interprets the town's colonial maritime heritage in nine houses and buildings dating from 1732 to 1859. Administered and managed by the Beaufort Historical Association, the site offers tours, classes, workshops and events throughout the year. Guided tours of the Historic Site depart the Safrit Historical Center (at the south end of the historic site). Or board one of the Old English double-decker buses for a narrated ride around town, complete with stories of town residents who colored local history. Architectural walking tours of Beaufort's historic district are available, and guided tours of the Old Burying Ground
In addition, the Beaufort Historical Association conducts its annual Beaufort Old Homes Tour during the last weekend in June. Activities include tours of private and association-owned homes, musical performances, an antique show and sale, military re-enactments and more.
