Beautiful Beaufort: John Mark Verdier House c. 1790

Located at 801 Bay Street, the John Mark Verdier House is the headquarters of Historic Beaufort Foundation. The exterior of this house was rejuvenated in March 2021 in colors meticulously researched to be authentic to the late 18th century when this house was built. It stands within 75 feet of a proposed 55,000-square-foot, four-story Marriott convention hotel that, if constructed, will tower over the entire historic downtown (see below).
