Special pages present Beaufort's 300 year history, as well as research on the Coree Indians, Taylor's Creek, Piver's Island, Gallant's Channel, Rachel Carson Reserve, Beaufort bridges, and Beaufort architecture.
Through the study of deeds, family records and other sources, more accurate dates were discovered for many of the historic homes, including when, and by whom, the Hammock House was built; four pages are dedicated to this important discovery.
The 8-page introduction, "Fond Memories of Life in Beaufort," written by Borden Mace (1920‒2014), provides readers a special insider's look into Beaufort in the '20s and '30s.

▪ "How exciting to have Mary unravel some of Beaufort's most intriguing mysteries! This book will be of great interest to residents, descendants and visitors." —John Hagle, President Beaufort Historical Association
▪ "In the 2011 'Preface' to the on-line edition of my Colonial Beaufort: The History of a North Carolina Town, I expressed the hope that 'some future student of Beaufort's history will strengthen its weaknesses and build on its foundations.' Mary Warshaw's new book, Historic Beaufort: A Unique Coastal Village Preserved, has made a significant contribution toward the fulfillment of that hope. The chief emphasis of her research for this book is on 'Beaufort's historic homes and families,' two areas that will greatly enhance our knowledge of the town's heretofore untold history." —Charles L. Paul, Professor Emeritus, Chowan University
