Beaufort waterfront park to add 'history' memorial

January 11, 2013 

The Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park is about to add a new feature -- one that will honor 300 years of Beaufort history with bite-sized history lessons. The tricentennial memorial will be made up of fourteen granite blocks with bronze plates set between a circle of palmetto trees. The memorial was paid for with proceeds from the Beaufort 300 campaign, in which more than 300 people, businesses and organizations donated at least $300 each. The names of the benefactors, a public unveiling and ceremony will be held at the site on Jan. 20 at 2 p.m.

The Island Packet is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point.
