FYI: QCI Savannah Meeting Attendees.
Barely 40 miles north of Savannah, Beaufort is a delightful little waterside town of about 12,000 people.
Scads of movies have been made there; Forest Gump, The Big Chill and The Prince of Tides.
It’s easy to see why.
buggy ride through the historic district, and visit the Penn Center Museum, the first school for freed slaves after the Civil War.
The Beaufort Arsenal was the home of the Beaufort Volunteer Artillery, which traced its formation to an earlier company organized in 1776 and served in the Revolutionary War. The BVA was stationed at Fort Beauregard during the Battle of Port Royal on November 7, 1861.
If you have time consider joining Jon Sharp for his wonderful Historical Walking Tour.
