Abstract: The overall purpose of the study was to compile a written and visual record of historic houses in Beaufort County, North Carolina and to analyze the significance of various influencing factors on the design of historic houses. Houses from the earliest extant home, ca. 1744, through 1899, were included in the study. Of those, 61 were selected for individual discussion. A photograph, description of the architectural features, and provenance of those houses were included. The procedure utilized was the historical method of research, consisting of a combination of archival, manuscript and field research. Emphasis was placed on analysis of architectural features in the context of the social, economic, political, and geographic environment. Information on past owners was compiled in order to provide more complete understanding of influences and functions of residences. Architects, builders, and carpenters who worked in Beaufort County were identified.
