The annual meeting of the members of Historic Beaufort Foundation was held Monday, March 19. The featured speaker was Nancy Tinker of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. HBF gives their highest Preservation Honor Award every year to exemplary restoration or adaptive use projects. This year’s winners for the Restoration Award were Beek Webb and Ashley Hefner for 302 King Street, owned by Ann and Sam Bluntzer. The Adaptive Use Award was given to the Garrett Family and Campbell Thorp. Chuck Ferguson was the contractor who remodeled 302 Carteret Street — the former City Hall that became Lowcountry Produce Market and Cafe.
