Beaufort District Collection

Beaufort District Collection

The Beaufort District Collection is a full service special library and archives. The purpose of the Beaufort District Collection is to acquire, preserve, maintain and share a research collection of permanent value about the history, Gullah culture, natural history, archaeology and genealogy of Beaufort District's long and storied past. Our collection focuses on the people, places, issues and themes relevant to Beaufort County, Hampton County, and Jasper County history, 10,000 BCE to the mid-1960s. Our Research Room is open for anyone over age 12 to explore their interest in any of these topics. We have books, audio-visual recordings, newspapers, illustrated prints, maps, photographs, postcards, and manuscript collections to support your historical and genealogical research. In addition to housing a fine collection of research materials, we employ competent staff to orient you to the possibilities and pitfalls of doing research in a "burned County." Contact us at (843) 255-6468 or e-mail gracec@bcgov.net to schedule Research Consultations. Want to do a little research from home before traveling to our Research Room? Our "Virtual BDC" may include just what you need to know. * Search this blog for materials and links about the people, places, issues and themes relevant to Beaufort County, Hampton County, and Jasper County 10,000 BCE to the mid-1960s. *Visit us on the web http://www.beaufortcountylibrary.org.
