We Bring History to Life!
We love New Bern and its amazing history. Since 1923, we have been celebrating and promoting New Bern's rich heritage through events and education. The Society is a nonprofit, member-supported organization.
We invite you to discover us today!
The Historical Society office is open for business from 10 am - 4 pm, Monday - Thursday; 10 am - 1 pm Friday.
During this phase of the NC reopening plan, we're unable to do any live programming. We hope to reschedule spring programs once restrictions on gatherings are removed.
Attmore-Oliver House tours are suspended at this time. Battlefield Park remains open for self-guided tours.
If you have any questions or would like a refund for a cancelled program, please call the office at 252-638-8558.
Thank you for your patience and support!
