Beaufort is the second oldest town in South Carolina, originally established in 1711 on Port Royal Island. In 1969, the 304-acre area comprising the original town was listed in the National Register of Historic Places and in 1973, the district was designated a National Historic Landmark. Just as it took great planning to create Beaufort in the early 18th century, it takes great planning to protect that history while moving the city into the 21st century.
