It’s a special birthday gift, and you get to open it! The New Bern Historical Society is celebrating its 100th year with a special free exhibit at the North Carolina History Center’s Duffy Gallery. Entitled “Through the Looking Glass, A Journey with the Storytellers”, the exhibit will fill the gallery and will be free and open to the public from April 22, 2023 to January 5, of 2024. After 100 years, the Historical Society has a large collection of images and artifacts of New Bern’s history. Many of these have been hidden for years in our files and storage, and others will be on loan from friends. The generosity of many, including our friends at Tryon Palace, has made this impressive exhibit possible.
