Don't miss the Home Tour and Creative Hands
The New Bern Historical Society and the New Bern Preservation Foundation spring home and garden tour is coming up on April 17-18, 2009, from 10:00am - 5:00 pm.
A self guided tour of some of New Bern’s finest homes and gardens takes place on both Friday and Saturday. Visit many homes in the historic district, the 1930 Pinnix Drug Store where you can purchase a good old-fashion, homemade bag lunch and homemade baked goods and take a leisurely stroll along the timeworn streets of New Bern’s downtown historic district and explore the finest architecture and flora our town has to offer.
Tickets (each ticket good for entire event)
Advance Purchase: $15
Purchase after April 16: $20
NBHS or NBPF members advance purchase $13
Groups of 12 or more $13
Active duty military: $10
Order tickets at the New Bern Historical Society 252-638-8558 or visit the New Bern Historical Society, 512 Pollock Street, New Bern, NC.
Each year, downtown homeowners open their homes so that ticket holders may explore and appreciate the exquisite gardens and architectural history of houses on tour. Most downtown historic churches are also open on tour days.
Celebrate spring in New Bern!
Also at Carolina Creations we will have a reception open to the public from 5-8 pm on Friday evening where I (Jan Francoeur) will be demonstrating making tiles. Each year I make tiles of the homes that are on the home tour. We're calling this evening "Creative Hands" and there will be demonstrations at Art & Materials, Bank of the Arts and Artworks & Co. This event is free and open to the public.
