Beaufort NHL District


Commissioned by the National Park Service (NPS) in 2021, this study assesses the integrity and condition of Beaufort's National Historic Landmark District (BNHLD). While individual landmarks are periodically assessed by the National Park Service, Beaufort's Landmark District had not been thoroughly assessed since its listing in 1973. One of America’s oldest and most prominent NHLs, the district covers the core of Beaufort's historic downtown first established in 1710.

The project includes a reconnaissance survey, photographic documentation, and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) analysis and mapping to determine the district's current integrity and condition. The info gleaned is being paired with data gathered from two community meetings open to the public, three listening sessions with identified stakeholders, one-on-one interviews with city officials, and an online public survey, all of which aim to capture community perceptions and concerns related to the district.

Upon completion, a report summarizing the team's findings will be presented by the National Park Service to the community for comment. The anticipated release date of the first draft is Fall of 2022.

Ethos is a sub-consultant to LG2 Environmental Solutions Inc. for this effort.
