Warshaw’s publication, HISTORIC BEAUFORT NORTH CAROLINA, A Unique Coastal Village Preserved takes an authentic look at the history of Homes, Buildings, Sites and Families in Beaufort.
The 200-page volume focuses on ALL (285) of Beaufort’s unique collection of historic homes built from the 1770s to the early 1900s. Within this account are 150 plaqued homes and 135 historic homes yet to be plaqued—all presented street-by-street, with images and histories of the families who called them home. Also included along these streets are historic buildings and sites. Special pages present Beaufort’s 300 year history, as well as research on the Coree Indians, Taylor’s Creek, Piver’s Island, Gallant’s Channel, Rachel Carson Reserve, Beaufort bridges, and Beaufort architecture.
Through her study of deeds, family records and other sources, Warshaw discovered more accurate dates for many of the historic homes, including when, and by whom, the Hammock House was built—a house long assumed to be the “White House” seen on early 18th century maps; four pages are dedicated to this important discovery.
