Beaufort celebrating major milestone

BEAUFORT COUNTY, SC (WTOC) - The City of Beaufort is getting ready to celebrate a major milestone. They are planning their tri-centennial and got some help from Benjamin Franklin.

Ben walked the streets of the city with mayor Billy Keyserling. Franklin was born in 1706, just 5 years before the city's charter was drafted.

Ben explained the value of money to children and pointed out that he's on the front of the $2 bill. The mayor says it's an opportunity to get excited about the upcoming celebration.
