Growing up in Beaufort (NOW FULL)

August 5 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

(NOW FULL) Join the waitlist by calling 252-728-5225.

Join us on Friday, August 5 at 7 p.m. at St. Pauls Church for a chat with Geoffrey Adair who was born and raised in Beaufort and is a member of the sixth generation of his family to live on Orange Street. He vividly remembers the smell of Menhaden steamers moored at Beaufort’s docks, the cool air of the season’s first mullet shift and the simple pleasure of swimming across “the cut” on a hot summer’s day. Learn a bit of Beaufort’s history and hear his recollections of what it was like growing up in this historic seaport village before it became Southern Living’s Top Small Town to Visit!

He’s planning for his presentation to be a multifaceted event, including a discussion about growing up in “pre-discovery” Beaufort, as well as the physical and cultural changes that have occurred here since the 1950s. He also plans to have a thirty-minute slide presentation comprised of 200 photos of Old Beaufort paired with photos of the same scenes as they appear today.

Please call 252-728-5225 to rsvp.

The event is free.
