About Beaufort Historic Site

Located in the heart of historic Beaufort-by-the-Sea, a charming and picturesque coastal North Carolina seaport, the Beaufort Historic Site offers a spacious outdoor venue in which to hold your wedding, reception, or other memorable celebration! The Beaufort Historic Site transports guests back in time, offering not only the perfect setting for your celebration but also tours and activities for guests of all ages. The two-acre site provides a beautiful backdrop for your celebration, whether under the shade of the magnolia trees or classic white tents or inside the Carteret County Courthouse c. 1796, which has recently been restored in award-winning detail.

A popular extra for those holding their wedding or other big events on the North Carolina coast is the Beaufort Historic Site’s vintage red English double-decker bus. Gather your wedding party and other guests for a special tour of the town atop our bus which can carry up to 72 people! Even if you’re not holding your wedding or big event at the Beaufort Historic Site, the red double-decker bus is available for rental and has been used for transporting guests to wedding receptions at nearby North Carolina beaches, etc.

Please call 252-728-5225 to request a tour, double-check availability, or ask any questions. Congratulations!

    Perfect venue, perfect wedding

    What an absolutely perfect venue this was for my wedding. My husband and I were looking for something affordable, pretty, and relaxed for us to have our reception at. Every step of the process was easy and exactly what we were looking for. They allowed us to set up the day before and clean up the morning after. We were able to select vendors and get our own liquor license to help make things cheaper for us in the end. All of the staff here we're wonderful from start to end and I couldn't recommend the Beaufort historic site more. We had a perfect day.
