Learn the history of one of Beaufort’s oldest and most famous houses, the Anchorage, and about five generations of Elliotts prior to and following the Civil War. Travel the Road to Secession and learn about the fall of Beaufort to the Union, the Cuban connection to the house, and South Carolina’s Trial of the Century. If walls could talk, this house would tell an incredible story!
