In the state of North Carolina, few cities can match New Bern for its charm and rich history. Founded in 1710, the lovely coastal settlement became the Tar Heel State's first capital in 1770 and continued to have a historic impact. Evidence of New Bern's long, proud heritage still graces its streets today, allowing passersby glimpses into earlier eras. Equipped with extensive knowledge and wit, local historian Bill Hand navigates New Bern and uncovers its illustrious past. Through three walking tours that trace the town's development from colonial times to the twentieth century, and one that highlights its houses of worship, Hand educates while he entertains. Both first time visitors and life long residents will enjoy spending a day ambling through history in one the South's most enchanting towns.
