The Beaufort History Museum (BHM) is partnering with the Beaufort County Library to create and present a lecture series that will focus on the fascinating history of the Beaufort District.   The series, which is free to the public, runs from September 2016 through May 2017 and features two lectures each month.  This is the first in the series!

Docent presenters in the Museum Exhibit Hall will give overviews of four periods: 
  1. Early European settlement and the Colonial period,
  2. The Revolutionary War – the Antebellum period, 
  3. The Civil War and the Reconstruction era and,
  4.  The Great Hurricane of 1893 – World War II.

Carol Lauvray, BHM Board President, made the announcement of the lecture series.  “We are very pleased to be working along with the Beaufort County Library to create this interesting and entertaining lecture series.  Our Education Committee has been developing the idea for the series for a while and it seemed that teaming up with the Library and utilizing their many resources would be a perfect partnership,” she said.

"Most of the lectures will take place at the Beaufort Branch Library’s Meeting Room.  We have worked closely through the planning stages with Library representatives Grace Cordial and Jan O’Rourke. Their input and generous support are essential to the success of the program.”  Cordial is the Beaufort District Collection Manager and O’Rourke is Assistant Director/Planning and Community Engagement

Our mission is to preserve, promote and interpret the experiences of our past that influence us now and in the future.

The Beaufort History Museum is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. 713 Craven Street, Beaufort, SC 29902
