Tryon Palace colonial site         Broken link?

The original Tryon Palace in New Bern housed two royal governors and served as North Carolina's late colonial capitol and first state capitol. Life there in the late 18th and early 19th centuries is interpreted through living history programs at the reconstructed palace buildings, plus three nearby historic houses and 13 period gardens. Seasonal activities include musical performances (sometimes featuring the Palace Fife & Drum Corps), dance performances (including the Jonkonnu troupe), Fourth of July fireworks and a magnificent Christmas display!
The palace was expanded in 2011 to include the N.C. History Center. The facility is part of the N.C. Department of Cultural Resources ( It is closed five days a year for major holidays.
Admission ranges from $3 to $10 for students, and $6 to $20 for adults, depending on the type of activities involved. Group rates are available.
