04 Apr April is huge for Beaufort and Port Royal

After several years of hard work, impressive community engagement, generous financial investment and collaboration among a broad array of scholars and citizens, The Santa Elena History Center will formally open with a series of very important and impressive events.

If you missed the story in the Packet/Gazette, you will want to read it as it is jam packed with excitement about the formal launch of the Santa Elena History Center. The opening is set on the 450th anniversary of the discovery and settlement of North America by Spanish explorers.  Yes, as professor Larry Roland proclaims in his story telling lectures, Beaufort was again the first.
