Beaufort Historic Site
The Beaufort Historic Site, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is a 2-acre area attraction made up of ten buildings, six authentically restored, in the center of the town’s historic district. The Beaufort Historical Association has restored and preserved the buildings in award-winning detail. The collections and furnishings, some original to the structure, help interpret a particular period in Beaufort’s history. Visitors can explore the historically accurate buildings, the original Carteret County Courthouse, the Old Jail (a visitor favorite), as well as the Apothecary and Doctor’s Office. Priceless collections of artifacts and antiques can be found throughout the properties, and volunteers offer tours, activities and special programs throughout the year for all visitors, young and young at heart.
