The Heart of it All

Chances are, one drive down Boundary Street and a turn onto Bay made you want to relocate to Beaufort. Founded in 1711 but with a rich history dating back to nearly 200 before, you only have to glance at Downtown to get a feel for its beautiful, storied past. Each building has its own charm, backstory and quirks – and they’re just waiting for you to find them.
