“After a minute of listening, this is not just a stone. This is a human being. It is unforgettable.”
Increased activity in Beaufort’s historic Old Burying Ground happens every year in the springtime thanks to the glorious outburst of color from the azalea filled grounds.  Visitors and residents enjoy strolling among the live oak trees and old grave markers in the cemetery that was featured in the book, 100 Most Romantic Places in North Carolina, and is on the National Register of Historic Places. The weathered tombstones chronicle the heritage of Beaufort and the surrounding coast with graves of soldiers from the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, and the Civil War, along with star-crossed lovers, and famous privateers.
This year, our visitors will also be able to hear stories about those who are now buried in these special gravesites as they read the markers revealing the stories of Beaufort’s early inhabitants that included sea captains, soldiers, privateers, ministers, doctors, young mothers and babies. Many of the stories have been passed down from generation to generation.
