The historic seaside village of Beaufort will be opening its doors for the 58th Annual Old Homes & Gardens Tour on June 22nd and 23rd. This annual tour features twelve of Beaufort’s beautiful private homes, ten glorious gardens, multiple local churches, and artists’ studios throughout the town. This year the Beaufort Historical Association changed the name from the Beaufort Old Homes & Gardens Tour to the Old Homes Tour and MORE. This change was made simply because the week of the tour will be offering much more than a few of Beaufort’s private homes and gardens.
From small cottages to beautiful waterfront homes and quaint gardens, this year’s tour will also feature the restored buildings on the historic site, a musical concert, the annual Kick Off party, a Literary Luncheon with two well-known authors, a VIP dinner and a closing Jazz Brunch featuring a New York interior designer. These events were added to compliment the tour and to give guest other events to enjoy while visiting the town of Beaufort for the Old Homes Tour. A complete Calendar of Events is listed below.
