Native Americans fished here--waters protected from the sea by barrier islands--long before the white man began to explore and eventually settle. The Coree or Coranine tribe left their mark on the area with names like Core Sound and Core Banks. In 1722, one year before the town of Beaufort was ...

Beaufort, North Carolina Artist, Author, Researcher, Geneologist and Weblogger
Introduction
In 1998 when I moved to Beaufort from Winston-Salem, I had one goal in mind--to paint seriously for the first time in my life and see what I could do with my art. It wasn't long before I began researching and painting some of the town's unique and welcoming porches.

I became more and more addicted to Beaufort history and noticed there was very little online. In 2006 I began "Beaufort - The Town and Why It's Unique." My mission was (and still is) to continue the research, compile and post the interesting history--especially facts and images I've never seen in print.

Other researchers, genealogists and descendants, with roots or interest in this old seaside village began to contact me. Thus, the histories expanded and more were documented.

In the midst of it all, I realized I was drawn to Beaufort for a reason. I continued painting and researching--all of which resulted in creating weblogs and writing Porchscapes, The Colors of Beaufort, North Carolina--Three Centuries of History Woven Through Art and Words.

Most recently I compiled a new book - North Carolina's Historic Beaufort, A Unique Coastal Village Preserved.
