Take a Stroll Back in Time

My husband and I walked through this incredible burial site. Very unusual gravesites, some dating back to the 1700s. I personally appreciated the old fences, gates and stonework.

Took advantage of Uni-Guide Tour of the Old Burying Ground. Fascinated by the many stories surrounding the individuals ... some legendary, others just plain interesting

A great historic cemetery but needs to be better maintained
juil. 2021
A very historic cemetery for exploring and learning more about the area. It needs to be bettered maintained. Also, the numbers on the downloadable audio sometimes did not coincide with the markers in the cemetery.,

A must for history people
juil. 2021 • En solo
This was very fascinating! The location had a pamphlet with information and a map to give you a self guided tour of 28 graves. It was very interesting and engaging.

There is also an app that offers a self guided audio tour, but just an FYI to everyone, it's literally just the text of the pamphlet read out loud.

The burying ground is not terribly big so having a group tour could be less than ideal. The historic society offers tours but only by reservation. So if you want one then they have to find a volunteer and set up a time with you and your group. I personally like tours of such places but since I was traveling by myself I wasn't going to be a one person group on a tour. I called a few times during the week hoping I could join another that was scheduled, but with no success.

It's a neat old cemetery, enhanced by a directory of who is in it. Many "residents" had a historic influence on Beaufort, and a couple had interesting stories (as in died-at-sea, brought-to-land in a keg of rum).

Talk about history and the uniqueness of Beaufort. To understand this town you must go to the burying ground to hear and understand the town and it’s history. Well worth the time

Very interesting self guided tour where you can get a map from the historical center or download a tour on your phone. Wonderful stories behind some of the many buried there.

I Went Twice!
mai 2021
Touring the Old Burying Grounds was the best thing I did in Beaufort - in fact I went back a second time early in the morning when few others were around so I could sit and draw the live oak trees and tombstones in my vacation journal and make notes of some of the fascinating stories found in the guide to famous burials. By the way, make sure you pick up the guide at the Historic Site Visitor Center (or print it on your computer back home before you come) because the guides are not available at the cemetery - we found out they stopped doing that because they just get wet and people throw them away on the grounds. We saw some beautiful carvings and heart-felt eulogies on the tombs, and the gigantic live oak trees were so evocative of the spirits that still linger. The cemetery has burials of African Americans and white people buried next to each other, as well as Civil War Confederate and Union soldiers. We found a grave from a Mayflower passenger and one of a man who signed the Halifax Resolves (North Carolina's Declaration of Independence) and several touching romances of people who loved and lost, and of many children who died in infancy. There was also an unmarked plot for settlers killed in an Indian Uprising in 1711. Here and there you will find old weathered wooden tomb markers that make you understand how remarkably historic this burying ground is.

We were disappointed that there were no brochures in the box at the entrance, and the scan/app did not work. I think it would have been interesting to read about the numbered gravesites, but we were not able to do so.

Do not go if you do not have a brochure.

We walked through, then read the brochure, then bought the book. Will visit again when we come back to Beaufort.
