Each year, the Sunday before Valentine’s Day, the Beaufort Historical Association welcomes the public to enjoy food, fun and fellowship as it opens the authentically restored homes and buildings on the Beaufort Historic Site during its annual Valentine Membership Party. This year’s event will be held from 2-4pm on Sunday, Feb. 7, welcoming current members and encouraging new members to join.
Held on the grounds of the historic site on Turner Street, the event showcases each of the site’s historic buildings, depicting a different aspect of life for early Beaufort residents, from the simple colonial Leffers’ Cottage to the ornately decorated Victorian Josiah Bell House.
Members are invited to come and bring along family, friends, co-workers and neighbors who have an interest in joining the Beaufort Historical Association and taking part in the varied preservation and education programs. The BHA’s strong association of individuals dedicated to preserving the treasured history of Beaufort, spans across the county, state and nation and offers a wide range of membership levels.
