The Berners Barnwell Sams House

bbsams

Located on New Street in the Historic Old Point of Beaufort, this 1812 town home built by plantation owner Dr. Sams is full of Antebellum charm and rich with history.  During the War Between the States, this home was seized by Union forces as a hospital for runaway slaves, and was inhabited by Clara Barton and Harriet Tubman.
