This years art for the New Bern Home and Garden Tour

For ??? years I have painted one of the homes that are going to be on the Historical Society's Home and Garden Tour 2016.

Here is this years artwork, 212 New Street.

Our home will be on the tour this year as well.

Spring Historic Homes & Gardens Tour
April 8 and 9, 2016, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.

On Friday, April 8 and Saturday, April 9, homeowners will open their doors so the public can visit some of the most beautiful and interesting homes in New Bern’s historic district. The 2016 Spring Historic Homes & Gardens Tour will provide a behind-the-scenes look at homes and gardens that are important to our town’s past and present.  Patrons will tour the living quarters of these homes, learning about the original architecture, renovations, and furnishings. In addition to the homes and gardens, many downtown houses of worship will be open for tours.

Among the gardens open to the public are the gardens at Tryon Palace, which should be in full bloom. Tryon Palace’s Annual Heritage Plant Sale will also be held on the Palace grounds during the tour. That weekend, Spring Homes Tour TICKET holders will have the opportunity to purchase discounted ADMISSION passes to Tryon Palace/NC History Center.

Be sure to grab a homemade boxed lunch to go or enjoy it in a quaint porch setting at the Blades’ Veranda Cafe. Boxed lunches are an $8 donation and include a sandwich or salad plate, drink and a sweet treat for dessert. This year there will even be an option for people with gluten sensitivities.

Tickets are $18 in advance, $22 day of the tour and $15 for NBHS members, and active duty military and their dependents with ID. 

Tickets are good for both tour days, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.

Call the New Bern Historical Society to volunteer with the Spring Historic Homes & Gardens Tour.

The Spring Historic Homes & Gardens Tour is a collaborative event presented by the New Bern Historical Society and the New Bern Preservation Foundation and is a major fundraising event for these non-profit organizations.

Celebrate spring in New Bern!
