BEAUFORT, S.C. (AP) - The new edition of the Historic Beaufort Foundation’s guide to Historic Beaufort tells visitors and residents a lot more about the history of the South Carolina coastal town.

The Beaufort Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1uMUlu8 ) that the new 10th edition of the guide adds information for about 35 more historic buildings. It now tells a bit about the history of 170 of the 500 historic structures in the downtown Beaufort historic district

One of those added in the new edition is the Mouzon House, a boarding house visited by black celebrities during the 20th Century. The guest list included fighter Joe Louis, gospel singer Mahalia Jackson and Morehouse College president Benjamin Mays.
