Beaufort’s New National Park Explained

2 mins read

Be the first to hear the first permanent Superintendent of Beaufort’s new National Historical Park at the Historic Beaufort Foundation’s Dinner & A Lecture on March 25 at Verdier House, 801 Bay Street. 

Newly-appointed Supt. Scott Teodorski will present “Bringing Stories to Life Through Your National Park,” an overview of the park’s sites and future plans.

Established just last week out of the Reconstruction Era National Monument initiative, the country’s newest National Historical Park will focus on the stories of Reconstruction and how, where and when those stories tie into the community. The initiative came out of almost 20 years of nurturing the goal of the nation’s Reconstruction history being showcased in Beaufort County.

Prior to his appointment to Beaufort’s National Park, Teodorski served as the Chief of Interpretation and Acting Superintendent at Congaree National Park in mid-state South Carolina. He began his National Park Service career as a seasonal ranger at Mammoth Cave National Park in Kentucky. He has worked in a number of National Park Service areas in addition to Mammoth Cave, including Fort Union National Monument in New Mexico, Lake Mead National Recreation Area, Cumberland Gap National Historical Park, and Cumberland Island National Seashore.

Dinner & A Lecture is a monthly educational series from September to May sponsored by Historic Beaufort Foundation.
