May is National Historic Preservation Month

Before I forget to mention that May is National Historic Preservation Month:

The SC Department of Archives and History’s 2012 Historic Preservation Month poster “Finding South Carolina’s Hidden Gems” is available online at It's not a Beaufort District related house, but it is a fine house nonetheless. What's particularly helpful is the guide about how to start researching an historic property which you'll find on page 2!

The National Trust for Historic Preservation suggests that it is always good to "Know the History Around You." From Altamaha, to Charlesfort, to Santa Elena, to Penn Center, to Mitchelville, to Fort Fremont, to the Marine Corps Recruit Training Depot, to Sea Pines development, etc., Beaufort County residents and visitors are blessed to have a long and distinguished history surrounding us all each and every day!
