Historic Downtown New Bern is one of the finest historic districts in the nation. Comprised of beautifully historic homes dating back to the late 1700's and early 1800's. Some of these are incredible to say the least. Large and palatial with beautiful garden areas. Others are neat bungalows, perfectly manicured as well as historic condos and town homes. Some areas of downtown are multi-zoned allowing for residential and commercial uses.

In several locations historic homes are converted to small shops on the ground floor with living quarters on the second and third floors. Other sections are strictly residential.

Downtown is very "happening", with quaint shops and restaurants, antiques, crafts, art studios, clothing, piano and oyster bar "Captain Ratty's", gourmet coffee shops an excellent civic theatre, Tryon Palace and more. All within walking distance! The Neuse and Trent rivers intersect downtown making for a picturesque environment. A new Convention Center is under construction. A new waterfront park has just been completed See the HISTORIC HAPPENINGS page of this web site for more information about Real Estate in the Downtown Historic District


Ghent Historic District

   This is the 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

.Today Spencer Avenue is considered one of the prettiest streets in New Bern, with old fashion street lamps along a landscaped median separating two lanes of traffic. Large flowering fruit trees are breathtakingly beautiful in April.

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,

which flourished along the Neuse River. Riverside was originally a mixed-use community of residential buildings and commercial enterprises. People wanted to live where they worked. Regrettably, as lumber ceased to be economically important, Riverside fell in to disrepair. The result was a neighborhood where beautifully refurbished homes and rundown buildings stood side-by-side. But fortunately for New Bernians, Both the city and Preservation Foundation have taken measures to restore this once-handsome community to its original function as home to a number of businesses and private residences.

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
