On Friday, April 7 and Saturday, April 8, homeowners will open their doors so the public can visit some of the most beautiful and interesting homes in New Bern’s Downtown and Ghent historic districts. The 2017 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.
Admission: Tickets are $18 in advance and available online or by calling (252) 638-8558
Group tickets also available
