Significance: Allegedly built before the American Revolutionary War, the Anchorage remained in the Elliot family up to the outbreak of the American Civil War. During Union occupaation of Beaufort, The Anchorage was used as a hospital and designated the Mission House. It was greatly altered in the first decade of the twentieth century by a retired Naval officer, Admiral Beardsley. The Admiral's renovations included adding stucco to the exterior and adding carved woodwork to the interior. Threatened with demolition in 1971, the Anchorage was bought by Historic Beaufort Foundation and later sold to a sympathetic owner. (text from "Historic Beaufort" p. 103)
