We check out the area everyday and love the peaceful scenery. The tides cause the area to change everyday.

I honestly had no idea there was so much marshlands in SC. It’s so refreshing to see much nature/wild life. Drove the streets of Beaufort & surrounding areas and the marshlands just kept going.

It isn't open to the public, but...

The more colonial and antebellum houses my wife and I visit in the southern states, the more we discover that are privately owned and not open to the public. It's a shame. They are an important part of the history of the United States. Instead, they can be viewed from a distance but not enjoyed from within. They can be appreciated for their architectural beauty. One such historic home is Marshlands in Beaufort, South Carolina. Located at 501 Pinckney Street, it also is known as the James Robert Verdier House. Built in 1814, it is a high quality and well-preserved example of early Beaufort architecture, showing both the Adamesque and West Indiana stylistic influences. It is also notable as a home of Dr. James Robert Verdier, who discovered a treatment for yellow fever. Marshlands was added to the National Register of Historic Places and designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1973, Unfortunately, today is is privately owned and not open to the public. But, because it is located in Beaufort's historic downtown area, on a parcel of land east of the junction of Pinckney and Federal Streets, overlooking the Beaufort River, it can be admired from afar. Marshlands is a two-story wood frame structure set on a tall foundation of pink tabby cement with an arcade of arches. It is topped by a hip roof and its exterior is sheathed in wooden clapboards. A single-story porch extends around three sides of the house, supported by square columns. The main entrance is framed by sidelight windows and topped by a fanlight. The interior retains high quality original Adamesque woodwork. During the Civil War, the house was used as the headquarters for the U.S. Sanitary Commission.
