Henry C. Chambers on the Waterfront Park

“Beaufort, S.C.’s downtown waterfront was a ‘derelict mess’ when Henry C. Chambers was sworn in as mayor of his hometown in 1969. Over the next decade, he led the effort to design and scrape together funding for a new park to replace a dilapidated wharf. Today, Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park is a destination for tourists and locals alike. In one of his final interviews, Chambers reflects on the park that transformed the city.”
