    »Caw Caw Interpretive Center

    This 1700's rice plantation that was once 5500 acres offers one of the best insights into the life of enslaved Africans who utilized their homeland skills in an agricultural industry that made Charleston one of the richest cities in colonial America. Now a 654-acre historical, cultural and natural museum, visitors have a unique opportunity to walk swamp trails and see natural wildlife just like plantation workers. An interpretive center introduces the visitor to the "Caw Caw Swamp", then guided tours into rice fields with interconnecting boardwalks and view archaeological digs of a plantation house burned by Sherman during the Civil War. Bird walks and canoeing trips on the sea marshes are two popular programs. Bring binoculars, bottled water, picnic lunch or snack and insect repellent. Rates vary for resident and non-resident. Call or check website. - Natasha Lawrence

    »The Kazoo Factory

    As the only Kazoo manufacturing company in the United States, this one-story musical toy facility is also a museum with tours and a gift shop. Kids and adults have a chance to make their own kazoos, too. Educational and entertaining, this museum shows that there's more to the little plastic sound maker. Invented in 1883 by Warren Herbert Frost, a kazoo is shaped like a submarine that, when blown into, modifies a person's voice. It is both a professional device and one that can be played just for fun. Located in a plain warehouse, The Kazoo Factory museum has an extensive display of early designs, materials and historic pieces. A factory tour shows how a kazoo is made in different styles, sizes and colors. Parking is on-site. -Natasha Lawrence

    A Greek Revival mansion built in 1844 and formerly owned by the Beaufort Historic Foundation, the George Elliott House is one of the beautiful structures in Beaufort that Sherman did not destroy during the Civil War.

Jenkins, as Union troops approached, it was sold by the Federal Government for back taxes after the war. The ground floor of the building is open to self-guided tours Monday through Friday, and the upper floors are now used as private offices. Visitors can purchase gifts and artwork from the Garden Shop. There is no admission charge. -Natasha Lawrence
