perfectly manicured as well as historic condos and town homes. Some areas of
downtown are multi-zoned allowing for residential and commercial uses.

newest of New Bern's 3 historic district; Admission to the National Register
occurred in 1983. Ghent contains private homes dating from 1913 to World War
II. The area encompasses Spencer, Rhem and parts of Park Avenues. It began
as a trolley car suburb in the days when working folks wanted homes away
from the hustle and bustle of downtown New Bern
Ghent is an energetic, people-oriented neighborhood where residents take to the sidewalks when ever the weather permits, Which is often in the New Bern climate. In recent years, it has become a highly desirable section for homeowners and has undergone a lot of sprucing up. Bungalow and cottage style homes with neat lawns make up a large part of the neighborhood. Some residences feature antebellum column fronts, and many have open or screened porches for those warm summer evenings.
The neighborhood is close to one of the area's nicest amenities, the new YMCA, which includes a Jr. Olympic-size swimming pool a gymnasium, weight rooms and a racquetball court. The "Y" also offers day care and exercise classes. Ghents is also fortunate to be situated between Fort Totten Park, which has a baseball field with bleachers, and the larger Lawson Creek Park, a popular fishing spot with nature trails, boat launches and picnic tables. Homes are larger here then in many new housing developments surrounded New Bern. Prices range from $165,000 to $420,000.
Riverside Historic District
Riverside is also
on the national register of Historic places. It comprises of National Avenue
and the section east of the avenue to the Neuse River. Development began in
the late 1890's in response to the lumber industry,
Many of Riverside's larger homes where built between 1896 and World War II, so there is a pleasant mix of architectural styles in the neighborhood. On National Avenue, high peaked, two-story Victorian structures with wrap around porches and plenty of shade trees are situated well back from the road. On the cross streets perpendicular to National Avenue and the Neuse are rows of tidy bungalows.
Homes along the River Drive waterfront are of an entirely different character. Here, you will find pretty brick ranch dwellings on small lots with plenty of trees and meticulous landscaping. Real estate values vary widely, with some of the older bungalows in the $150,000 to $200,000 range. Renovated historic dwellings here start at about $250,000, with ranch style houses along the shore selling for a bit more
