The Town of Beaufort has five historic neighborhoods: Downtown, The Point, The Bluff, Old Commons, and the Northwest Quadrant.
Pigeon Point, located immediately north of Downtown Beaufort along with the National Cemetery and two major city parks, has experienced a renewal and renovation in recent years. The West End and Depot neighborhoods concentrated around the old Rail Depot have also been the focus of recent redevelopment efforts, notably City Walk.
Beaufort is one of only a handful of U.S. towns that has had its entire downtown designated an historic district by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Filled with mansions built by the wealthy plantation owners before the Civil War, Beaufort was one of the only Southern towns chosen to be occupied by Union troops, rather than destroyed. More than 50 historic structures have been identified including many restored lovely private homes.
