Beaufort is full of rich seaport history. Incorporated in 1723 and occupied by Union force,  Soldiers from the Revolutionary War, War of 1812 and Civil War are buried within this community. Beaufort is the 3rd oldest town in North Carolina.

Beaufort matured into a close knit community with ties to the sea and commercial fishing fleet generations deep.  


 In 1997,  just two miles off the Beaufort Inlet , history was made in the finding of Blackbeard's        Queen Anne's Revenege  wreckage in 20 feet of water. Artifact recovery and preservation has become a popular attraction for the NC Maritime Museum .

  Over the recent years Downtown Beaufort has been a place of restoration and beautification. The quaint shoppes and restaurants welcome you and the boardwalk offers a breathtaking view of Galliants Channel, stunning sunsets and aif you are lucky a glimpse of wild ponies on Carrot Island. 


  The homes are rich with charm and character. Pride is beaming as you walk down the side streets and sidewalks to reminisce of years gone by. Rocking chair porches, American flags, and coastal colors sprinkle the streetscape and many restored homes wear a historical plaque to note authenticity of eras gone by .

         So,  if you don't have plans this coming weekend--- how about a trip to Beaufort NC ?

The weather is expected to be mild- and the Christmas Walk and Candlelight Tour are sure to be a fun way to peek into the historic cottages of Downtown Beaufort.

As you walk the district and tour these beauties take note that there are coastal cottages for sale within the downtown area ranging from mid 300's to million + depending on size, proximity to the waterfront and the level of restoration.

Give me a call if you would like to see any of the homes currently for sale. I can show you any of the homes with for sale signs is in the yard and work to represent you and your best interest as your Buyers Agent. Let me know you are coming to town- We can discuss your options and make plans.

Hi Michele ... Excellent post. I love Beaufort! Doesn't everybody? It reminds me of Southport but it has a unique feel to it. Great downtown and waterfront....and of course lots of historic homes that I love.

ZBeaufort has a wonderful revitalization project going on and they really want to see the history preserved. The waterfront offers shoppes and dining as well as boats for hire...it is worth a visit-be careful though  you may fall in love !
