The Beaufort Woman’s Club introduces the first Craftsman Style Architecture Tour in downtown Beaufort, N.C., on Saturday, Oct. 26, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The tour will feature more than 10 of the town’s Craftsman style homes. Tour goers may visit the homes and the 1907 Beaufort Train Depot, where preservation enthusiast and Craftsman homeowner, Dr. Dan Krautheim, will present the architecture and history of Beaufort’s Craftsman style homes.
Craftsman style bungalows, with their prominent front porches and gently pitched roofs, became popular between 1906 and 1940. Craftsman plans and construction kits were often sold through mail order companies to meet the growing demand for affordable homes after World War I.
Proceeds from the Craftsman Style Architecture Tour will benefit several local charities, including the academic success programs of the Beaufort Boys and Girls Club of the Coastal Plain, laptop computers for The MirIAM, a drug and alcohol and detox/rehabilitation facility for women, and assistance with the restoration of the hurricane devastated Carteret Community Theatre.
