The New Bern Historical Society is dedicated to sharing the rich history of New Bern, NC and has been doing so since 1923. The Historical Society offices are located in the Attmore-Oliver House, c. 1790, in New Bern’s historic district. In addition to offices there is a Civil War display and room installations reflecting life in the mid-19th century. Beautiful historic gardens are located behind the house. The New Bern Historical Society also owns and stewards 30+ acres of the Battle of New Bern’s Civil War battlefield. The New Bern Battlefield Park is located near James City just off of Highway 70 East.
It is Wednesday, so "What is in the Attic with Jim?"
Here is another photo that Jim received from the Firemen's Museum. It is a photo of St. John's Masonic Lodge & Theatre on the 500 block of Hancock Street. Inside is a theater that was the "oldest theatre in continuous operation at the time it closed." ( A New Bern Album, John Green III pg. 189) . Can you see the advertising in the front. Looks like a Circus with Bengal Tigers was coming to town. We believe this photo is circa 1910.
