If you say who is/was Pat Conroy this place is probably not for you. If you loved the Great Santini, Prince of Tides, The Water is Wide and another dozen books this is a required destination. A block from the beautiful Beaufort waterfront. The Conroy memorabilia is sigificant, well presented. The opportunity to sit at Mr. Conroy's desk where he hand wrote some great literature was an honor. Ms. Ritter and the staff were very knowledgeable and very friendly as are most everyone in the Beaufort area. Loved it.
