Five years after leaving The Arsenal, the Beaufort History Museum collection is returning to the historic building at the corner of Craven and Carteret streets.   


City public-works employees and museum volunteers took care of the heavy lifting this week, moving artifacts from City Hall at 1911 Boundary St., where the museum has been for two years.

The museum will create a temporary display on the second floor until a more permanent exhibit can be created, board president Anna Schaffer told The Beaufort Gazette in an article published Aug. 2, 2014. Brockington and Associates, a cultural-resources consulting company, has been contracted to create the long-term display of artifacts, she said.

City public works employees and volunteers worked Aug. 1, 2014, to move artificats and exhibits of the Beaufort History Museum back into The Arsenal after a five-year absence.
