Description

A jewel among early 19th-century homes in Beaufort, this four-story Federal style mansion was built in 1795 by a French Huguenot using shipbuilding methods. Each room has a fireplace with a finely carved ornamental mantle. Listed in the National Register, it was used as headquarters for Union troops during the Civil War. Until it came under the wings of the Beaufort Historic Foundation in 1971, the house was used for a variety of businesses. Located across the street from Waterfront Park, it is the only architecturally historic home that is open to the public as a museum. It is sometimes called the Lafayette House because the Revolutionary War hero stayed there. Docent tours are given every half hour. Metered street or park parking is available. -Natasha Lawrence
