Calling it one of the most important things to happen to Beaufort in his lifetime, Mayor Billy Keyserling helped inaugurate and congratulate all the people involved in completing the first section of the remarkable Spanish Moss Bike/Walk Trail in the newly refurbished Depot building on Depot Road.

Jim Kennedy speaks before a crowd Tuesday, Nov. 19, at the newly refurbished Depot building, marking the completion of the first section of the Spanish Moss Bike/Walk Trail.

Jim Kennedy, who provided the crucial starting funds for the trail from the James M Cox Foundation, described an inspiring vision of Beaufort being one day connected to Charleston and other cities via a network of bike trails like the ones he’s been an important part of creating for the city of Atlanta.
Big thanks go to Jim from all of us in Beaufort for his crucial and transformative role in making Beaufort County a better, more “people friendly” place to live and to enjoy our beautiful environment for generations to come.
