Tryon Palace in New Bern is the perfect place to watch North Carolina’s history come to life. In addition to housing the Governor’s Palace, North Carolina’s first colonial capitol and first state capitol, along with more than twenty acres of other historical buildings and gardens, Tryon Palace allows you to step through a virtual time machine into the year 1835. There you can adopt a historic role and experience your surroundings as the coastal village they once were.
