Mary Warshaw’s latest 200-page volume focuses on all (285) Beaufort's unique collection of historic homes built from the 1770s to the early 1900s. Within this account are 150 plaqued home 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.
"Mary Warshaw's talent and fascination with all the details of Beaufort's history will make this book a 'must have' resource for the many people all over the world who know and love Beaufort."
"How exciting to have Mary unravel some of Beaufort's most intriguing mysteries! This book will be of great interest to residents, descendants and visitors."

Executive Director, Beaufort Historical Association
"In the 2011 'Preface' to the on-line edition of my Colonial Beaufort: The History of a North Carolina Town, I expressed the hope that 'some future student of Beaufort's history will strengthen its weaknesses and build on its foundations.' Mary Warshaw's new book, Historic Beaufort: A Unique Coastal Village Preserved, has made a significant contribution toward the fulfillment of that hope. The chief emphasis of her research for this book is on 'Beaufort's historic homes and families,' two areas that will greatly enhance our knowledge of the town's heretofore untold history."
