Kate Gleason lived in Beaufort part time and spent her days in the house side of what became the Gold Eagle Tavern. This postcard of the tavern was made when it opened in 1930. It was named to honor Henry W. deSaussure, born in Beaufort, appointed director of the mint by President George Washington, and responsible for America's first gold coins.
