Progress Through Preservation

   ~  Over 60 Structures Saved by the Foundation  ~

The mission of the Foundation is to preserve historically signifcant structures and sites

in and around New Bern, North Carolina.


Chartered in August, 1972, the New Bern Preservation Foundation immediately began saving buildings and thus upgrading neighborhoods. A small group of dedicated volunteers worked alone until 1981 when they hired their first professional executive director.  Currently we do not have an executive director. Thea Grace Morgan serves as the Foundation's part-time office administrator.
