Beaufort, NC has a new cool tool check this out! #historicalbeaufort #newapp #beaufortnc #mycrystalcoastnc

“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.

December 31, 2016 by Pecan Tree Inn

What a year it has been. We want to thank all of all of our guests. 2016 was a humbling year for us we have met so many wonderful people this year, some just passing through some staying for awhile and some we have become good friends with! On this New Years Eve we want to recap some of the small changes that have taken place at the inn. The exterior of the house was painted, we put in a new fountain and waterfall, opened the garden back on the home and garden tour, two weddings in the courtyard, B&BforVet night, added a new gift shop and updated the kitchen. We will offer lunch packages in the spring and wine in 2017. We are running a New Years Special in January 25% off our off season room rates does not include taxes. Hope to see in 2017. Happy New Year Everyone! #beaufortnc #mycrystalcoast #mycrystalcoastnc #pecantreeinn

Enjoy historical demonstrations such as sword fighting, cannon firing and see black powder weapons displays, a mock trial and hanging and so much more.

There will be activities for everyone young and old to enjoy throughout town, such as musical entertainment, magic shows, costume contest, storytelling, period encampments and vendors.

Depression Bead Demonstration

As part of the Beaufort Historical Association’s Living History series, Gigi Koehler will conduct a depression bead demonstration on Saturday, August 6th from 1:00-3:00 pm followed by a depression bead workshop on Thursday, August 11th at 10:00 am in the Beaufort Historic Site’s Welcome Center, 130 Turner Street.

Ms. Koehler will demonstrate the way depression beads are made out of rolled paper, and then strung together to create unique necklaces and bracelets.  Although they originated during the Victorian Era, the beads got their name because women and girls during the Great Depression made jewelry out of paper instead of purchasing more costly items.  Despite the inexpensive source, the paper beads added a vibrant pop of color to the wearer.

In the last few years spritsail skiffs have battled for this historic trophy, which resides in the Web Library. This race starts in front on the Harvey W. Smith Watercraft Center on Taylors Creek at about 9 a.m. North Carolina Maritime Museum in Beaufort, 315 Front Street, Beaufort.
