Encore! New Bern On the Move
January 9, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Images of houses on wheels traveling the streets of New Bern caught everyone’s attention. As the result this presentation sold out quickly in September, so, the New Bern Historical Society is offering it once again. Everyone’s favorite Curator, New Bern native Jim Hodges, presents a fascinating program about the history of moving houses in downtown New Bern. This special encore will be presented January 9 at 2pm at Orringer Auditorium on the Craven Community College New Bern Campus. 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 buildings that have been spared the wrecking ball to enjoy a new life in a changing environment.
Cost for this program is $10 for Historical Society members, $15 for nonmembers. Prepaid reservations are strongly recommended. Go to www.NewBernHistorical.org/tickets or call the office at 252-638-8558. Paper tickets are not issued for this program. Simply check in at the door with your confirmation.
