The Beaufort Teen Center is moving back into the main building of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Beaufort to save money and put teens and younger children under the same roof.

The center will return to the main facility at 1100 Boundary St. after spending five years two blocks away at 1211 Harrington St., according to a news release.

"It was a luxury to have a separate building for Beaufort teens for the past five years," Doug Barry, executive director of the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Lowcountry, said in the release. "However, to remain economically vigilant, it makes perfect sense to put our Beaufort services under one roof."

The Harrington Street location will close Jan. 17. The teen center area will reopen at the Boundary Street location in mid-March or as soon as renovations are complete.
