THIS EVENT IS POV ONLY! Academy Museum – Saturday 23, September
The New Bern Academy Museum is in an 1809 building four blocks from Tryon Palace in the heart of New Bern’s historic residential district. Originally a school house for both boys and girls, the New Bern Academy served as a hospital in the Civil War and in 1881 became part of the New Bern graded school system which used it for classes until 1971. Today, the Academy building’s original classrooms are home to four permanent exhibits focused on the Civil War, New Bern Architecture, and the history of the building itself. Admission is FREE! Volunteers are needed to greet visitors as they enter the Academy, monitor the collections, and provide attendance. For more information contact the SMP front desk at 252-466-3027.
