Jon walker history

Downtown Marina, 1006 Bay Street,
Beaufort, SC 29901

Jon Sharp shipwrecked in Beaufort. A former Hollywood actor, Jon came ashore in a Coast Guard rescue helicopter in February 1992 and soon fell under the spell of Beaufort's natural beauty, her people, and her history.

Jon's 2 hour Walking Tour through the National Historic District of Beaufort is a leisurely 2 mile stroll amidst some of the finest antebellum homes in America. 

The spellbinding and deeply emotional narrative begins and ends in front of the Downtown Marina.
