While in Beaufort, do visit the Old Burial Ground. Your tour can be self-guided or you can get a paid guide from the BHA. Don't miss the grave of British soldier buried standing up and the young girl buried in a rum barrel.

We stumbled upon the Old Burying ground as we were strolling up and down the beautiful streets of this historic town. We were fascinated by the early tombstones and the tranquil feel, It was late afternoon and the dappled sunlight shining through the ancient, live...More

We did a walk through. There were pamphlets to read and match up with the numbers around the burial ground. It was interesting to see.

We only had about ten minutes to visit here, but glad that we did. The Azaleas and Wisteria were in full bloom (early April). We had a brochure from the Visitor's Center with lots of interesting stories about people buried here. Worth a stop if...More

This graveyard was loaded with history. There is a phone app you can download to do a voice guided tour. Nice that they have preserved the local history and promoted it.
