Heritage Homes Tour returns to New Bern

NEW BERN, NC (WNCT) – The story of New Bern is a remarkable story of strength and resilience. Neither hurricanes nor pandemics can erase this history.

The New Bern Historical Society will celebrate the endurance of New Bern’s beauty and charm with the New Bern Heritage Homes Tour on April 8-9.

As Mickey Miller, executive director of the New Bern Historical Society, explains, “It’s not visiting your mother’s homes. You can expect a diverse range of unique homes in the downtown historic district, ranging from traditional 19th century dwellings to creative adaptive reuse structures and exciting new infill homes. These are not museum properties; they are livable family homes with rich stories and architecture that exemplifies New Bern’s incredible history.

In addition to notable houses, the event will host working artists, performing musicians and a variety of food trucks.

Tickets, valid for both days, are available at www.NewBernHistorical.org/tickets, by calling 252-638-8558, or by visiting the New Bern Historical Society at 511 Broad St. in New Bern. Also available at Mitchell Hardware, 215 Craven Street, Harris Teeter, 3565 MLK Blvd., and Harris Teeter, Carolina Colors.

Tickets are $20 for adults through April 7. Starting April 8, adults are $25. Active duty military and family members, students under 23, and members of the historical society are $15. Groups of more than 10 people are also $15 each.
