Beaufort County, South Carolina, Welcome!

This house was built circa 1840-41. It was originally built by the Cole family from Texas as a summer home. The building has survived the Burning of Bluffton in 1863 and a terrible storm called the "Great Sea Island Storm of 1893." It is one of 10 antebellum buildings in Bluffton's Historic District. It is now run as a historic house museum reminiscing of the mid to late 1800's.  Photo Copyright © 2009 Heyward House Historic Center, all rights reserved.  Used with permission of, and thanks to, Magen Wilson, Operations Manager, Heyward House Historic Center.
