NORTHERN COASTLAND ADVENTURES
This is North Carolina’s cradle of civilization. Like the birds in the local Atlantic Flyway, here is where we learned to fly faithfully and gracefully. Now we teach others how to keep it that way. (For more information see our travel resources on page 82.)
TRYON PALACE AND GARDENS
NEWBOLD-WHITE HOUSE NEW
Once the grandest residence in the American colonies, Tryon Palace in New Bern saw its restoration begin in the 1940s and has become the state’s grandest public history project.
Simple and elegant, the Newbold-White House in Hertford stands as the oldest house in North Carolina open to the public.
PURPLE MARTIN MAJESTY
A Depression-era project, Tillery Resettlement helped African American families take pride in farming and land ownership, leading to a nationally-known community-building movement.
Every summer, some 100,000 purple martins roost safely under a bridge between Manns Harbor and Dare County’s Outer Banks.
