Beaufort District/County

History

In the Carolina Low Country, Beaufort District was formed in 1769 as one of seven original judicial districts. In 1785, Beaufort District was divided into four counties: Granville, Hilton, Lincoln and Shrewsbury. These counties never became functional, and in 1798 these counties were abolished. In 1868, Beaufort District was designated Beaufort County. Its county seat, the town of Beaufort, is on US-21, about 40 miles northwest of Savannah, GA and 110 miles south of Columbia. Since the Civil War, the Marines have used Beaufort County's Parris Island as a training base. Beaufort County is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, the South Carolina counties of Jasper and Colleton, and the Georgia county of Chatham.
