New Bern on the Move
Presented by Jim Hodges
Sunday, January 9, 2022 at 2 pm
Orringer Auditorium, Craven Community College
Everyone's favorite Curator, New Bern native Jim Hodges, returns with an encore of his exciting new program about the history of moving houses in downtown New Bern. Curator Jim will share how, in the spirit of preservation, structures large and small were carefully relocated to save them from demolition. With his folksy and humorous delivery, he will present a pictorial history of the challenging journey of fifteen homes that have been spared the wrecking ball to enjoy a new life in a changing environment.
Jim's first program sold out quickly, so make your reservations now!
