Original post office and general store in Seabrook, South Carolina

Seabrook is an unincorporated community located in Beaufort County, South Carolina, USA. Situated in northern part of the county along the Whale Branch River, Seabrook was founded in the late 1700s as a collection of plantations became established in the area. In the late 1800s, Seabrook became a stop on the Port Royal and Augusta Railway and featured a small, but bustling downtown area that had a federal Post Office, a general store, a gas station, and a train station. The local economy was driven by the nearby farmland. The village's old economy and markets have since yielded to development in Beaufort, though the Post Office remains to serve the village's remaining inhabitants. In the past ten years, three new public schools have opened in the Seabrook area to serve area students, including Whale Branch Early College High School.

The McLeod Farmstead was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1997.[1]
