Beaufort County tendering lease with Santa Elena Foundation for historic courthouse

From the Beaufort Gazette:

“Beaufort County leaders are putting the finishing touches on a proposed lease to turn the old federal courthouse in Beaufort into a history museum and the main offices for the Santa Elena Foundation.

The plan would give the foundation its first real headquarters and jump-start its efforts to preserve the history of Santa Elena, a 16th-century Spanish settlement in Port Royal, foundation director Andy Beall said.”
