The Beaufort Historic Site in the middle of Beaufort, North Carolina's historic district, is home to a complex of nine historic houses that tell the story of the coastal region of North Carolina in the 18th and 19th centuries. One of the homes is the Josiah Bell House, home to Josiah Fisher Bell, a confederate spy in a town where 40% of the population sympathized with the Union.[1] The other historic buildings include:[2]

The Beaufort Historical Association, which operates the two acre site, also operates the nearby Old Burying Ground, home to some former residents of historic Beaufort.[3] The cemetery was also among the few consecrated by Union and Confederate clergy.
