2024 New Bern History Quest

September 21 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Expect lots of fun as you test your sleuthing skills in this third annual family friendly outdoor history hunt! On Saturday Sept 21 starting at 10am, teams will gather at New Bern Battlefield Park to receive their clues to a series of quests. Hop in your car and follow the clues to find historical places in and around New Bern. In this fourth year of this event, you’ll find a whole new slate of clues and places to discover. You’ll be amazed at what you’ll learn about our past! Teams can start any time after 10am but must start no later than 1 pm.
Those who complete all the quests by 4:00pm will be eligible for both prizes and bragging rights. Put on your Clever hat because there will also be a prize for the best team name!
Gather your teams and join the fun! They can be family, both adults and children; friends and co-workers; or other teams you may belong to. We wonder who has the best sleuthing skills — your office team, the dentist office team, the Police Department, or the Fire Department? The Smiths or the Joneses?
Each team may have up to 6 people, that’s adults or children. They’ll travel in one vehicle. Smart phone use is allowed. In fact, you may use any source for information, smart phone, library, or favorite Aunt.
