The Beaufort History Museum invites you to a Fish Camp Celebration at City Hall on Thursday, December 13! Janet Garrity’s new book, Goin’ Down the River has sparked an interest in a low country lifestyle that is almost as old as Beaufort. This interest can be seen up close and personal (and realistically closer than you’ll get to a real “smelling the pluff mud” fish camp) at a new exhibition that opens Thursday, December 13, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Beaufort History Museum at City Hall.

Forgotten artifacts find home at Beaufort History Museum

For years, a collection of historical artifacts lay tucked away and forgotten. Time and improper storage took a toll on many of the items, while other pieces disappeared.
Our mission is to preserve, portray, and promote the experiences of our past that influence us now and in the future.
