The story of the Open Land Trust and the Bluff Vista project both start at the same time when a “For Sale” sign was placed on a waterfront lot along the eastern edge of Bay Street. This sign galvanized the citizens of Beaufort who realized that a precious view would be lost for residents and visitors houses were to be constructed on the site. Led by three dynamic individuals OLT Founders Betty Waskiewicz, Margarite Borz, John Trask Jr a bank loan was secured to purchase the lot and protect the scenic vista forever.
