North Carolina's third oldest town of Beaufort opens private historic homes to the public annually in June. This is a chance to see homes built by sailors, pirates, merchants and skilled craftsmen as early as the 1700's that have been lovingly lived in and preserved by families for many generations. Celebrating the 62nd anniversary, the Old Homes Tour offers tours of a eleven homes and gardens as well as the Beaufort Historic Site along the beautiful historic Front, Ann, Moore and Marsh Streets. This year's highlight is the Easton House built in 1771 and featured in our State Magazine several years ago. A self guided brochure and map enable you to enjoy this walking tour at your own pace coupled with time for lunch, visits to other historic sites, churches, art galleries and specialty shops. It's a full day in a seaport town filled with charm and character!
