Beaufort Academy fifth graders tour historic church

Beaufort Academy fifth grade students traveled downtown to tour the historic Parish Church of St. Helena. The tour started in the graveyard where the students learned tales of Union and Confederate soldiers and of families with key roles in the history and development of Beaufort.  They then travelled inside and learned about the history of the church, which was founded just one year after the founding of Beaufort 300 years ago. Finally, the students were treated to an organ concert by Matthew Brown of Salisbury, NC.
