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.  

Educator and skilled historic storyteller Beverly Eggert will reprise the adventures of Jean Ribaut, Rene Laudonniere, and Jacques LeMoyne as they make their journey from France to the New World in 1562 and again in 1564. The saga is complete with tales of Indian raids, mutiny, murder, starvation, kidnapping and political intrigue.

Beverly Eggert is a retired Beaufort County English teacher.  After her retirement she focused on her four passions:  reading, writing, researching, and teaching.  Her style of teaching is storytelling, not the “dull, boring” stuff of the history books, but telling the story of history, and since Beaufort County has 500 years of history, there is a lot to tell.  She has been a presenter at the Santa Elena History Center, and the South Carolina Humanities Festival 2016. 

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
