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!
Upcoming Events & Programs
In response to health concerns over the Coronavirus, the Historical Society has postponed April programs and suspended registration for May programs. We will provide rescheduled dates as soon as possible. If you have a paid reservation for one of the April programs, please call the office at 252-638-8558 to have it held for the new date or to be issued a refund. Attomore-Oliver House tours and guided battlefield tours are suspended at this time. Thank you for your patience and support.
