Lunch & Learn: New Bern On the Move
September 15 @ 11:30 am
“Moving to a new place” has a whole ‘nother meaning for historic New Bern!
Everyone’s favorite Curator, New Bern native Jim Hodges, returns to kick off the New Bern Historical Society’s Lunch & Learn series with a fascinating new program about the history of moving houses in downtown New Bern. This special two-hour lunch program will take place Sept. 15 at 11:30am at Carolina Colours Pavilion at 3300 Waterscape Way. 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 sixteen buildings that have been spared the wrecking ball to enjoy a new life in a changing environment.
