BEAUFORT, SC (WTOC) - The Beaufort County Open Land Trust, the Beaufort County's Rural and Critical Land Protection Program, and the city of Beaufort, were successful in their effort to preserve and protect the last undeveloped city block in Beaufort's historic district. 

The one-acre parcel, known as the Green, is in the heart of the residential Old Point. It was divided into two separate parcels with two private landowners. 

The Land Trust secured a donation from the Gray Family for the east half and raised funds in order to purchase the west half, according to the Beaufort County Open Land Trust.
