Update August 15: The Packet has followed with an extended profile on the building and its political history; read it here.
First reporting August 13: Come Monday, August 16, Beaufort will get its first new City Hall in 150 years, and just one year before the town marks 300 years. And the first City Hall meeting will be held there this Tuesday.
We're still getting hooked into the local press release machine, so I'll point you over to The Island Packet to read the PR there.
