Tryon Palace – New Bern, North Carolina

27 Oct

Tryon Palace first served as a meeting place for the colonial assembly and a residence for the Royal Governor of North Carolina. All the buildings are reconstructed buildings except the stables. The Palace is a gorgeous Georgian architecture with exquisite furnishings and a garden beautifully manicured with a diversity of plants which are said to be native to the river edges of coastal North Carolina. And with the aim to give visitors a better museum experience, Tryon Palace opened the The North Carolina History Center complete with the state-of-the-art interactive technology and living history programs.
