Editor Reviews
From the front Cover Beaufort, South Carolina, is the kind of place where trucks are rerouted around roads to protect low-hanging tree limbs, phones ring to alert owners to the wanderings of pet dogs and rabbits, and neighbors visit in the street during the cool of early-morning walks. Stately mansions and picturesque, cozy cottages line the avenues of the beautiful old neighborhoods, but visitors to the area have had to be content with merely enjoying their exterior facades--until now. The Majesty of Beaufort invites you inside to enjoy the simple elegance and down-home charm of these wonders. Inside these pages you will find beautiful full-color photographs of historic house museums, architectural landmarks, the downtown historic district, the Old Point neighborhood, and St. Helena Island sites and plantations. Whether you live in Beaufort, plan on visiting, or just have an interest in Southern history or American architecture, this book will be a beautiful addition to your library.
