Named 2012's "America's Coolest Small Town", Beaufort, North Carolina dates to at least 1709 and boasts having been under siege by pirates patrolling North Carolina's "outer banks" three different times. The notorious pirate Blackbeard ran aground in his Queen Anne's Revenge in the mouth of Beaufort Inlet. The North Carolina Maritime Museum in Beaufort today displays the ship's booty---booty still being recovered.
Beaufort's streets, waterfront, and surrounding areas haven't changed drastically since the 1700s. Houses that were built in the eighteenth century on Front Street, particularly in the first and second block, are still standing today, occupied by families whose ancestors helped develop the town. The town cemetery, the Old Burial Ground, is a landmark historical site, boasting among other things, a soldier from the Revolutionary War who insisted that when he died he be buried standing up.
Wild horses today wander through the brackish water of Shackleford Banks, the ancestors of stallions and mares that swam ashore from Spanish shipwrecks beginning 400 years ago.
Against this backdrop, Preston Development Company is being lauded by the City of Beaufort for it's planned development of Beaufort East Village, a 300 acre residential project that will keep the flavor of Beaufort's historic architecture, it's porches, it's community taste and feel as it expands the perimeter of the current edge of Beaufort proper. The project has been set up and is ready for development. Sewer, water, and roadway easements are approved and in place.
