A UNIQUE COASTAL VILLAGE PRESERVED

A Unique Coastal Village Preserved

Mary Warshaw's latest 200-page volume focuses on 285 historic homes built from the late 1770s to the early 1900s - 150 plaqued homes and 135 historic homes yet to be plaqued—all presented street-by-street, with images and histories of the families who called them home. Also included are historic sites and buildings. 

Special pages present Beaufort's 300-year history, as well as more research on the Coree Indians, Taylor's Creek, Piver's Island, Gallant's Channel, the Rachel Carson Reserve, and the Beaufort's bridges.

Through the study of deeds, family records and other sources, I was able to discover more accurate dates for many of the historic homes, including the Hammock House, a house long assumed to be the "White House" seen on early 18th century maps; four pages are dedicated to this important discovery, concluding that the Hammock House was actually built in 1800 by Samuel Leffers."
