The Soiree commemorates the 1825 visit to Beaufort by Revolutionary War hero Marquis de Lafayette, who made a stop while on his farewell tour across America.

Tidewater, the location of this year’s event, was originally built for William Fripp, one of the area’s wealthiest planters. This Beaufort townhome was built on the banks of the Beaufort River in the mid to late 1830s.

This year’s event chairs are Michelle Prentice & Josh Gibson and Will & Amy Achurch.

Proceeds from the Lafayette Soiree will benefit the Historic Beaufort Foundation. The Historic Beaufort Foundation was chartered in 1965 with the mission to support the preservation, protection and presentation of sites and artifacts of historic, architectural and cultural interest throughout Beaufort County, South Carolina.
