African American Tours

Many visitors to New Bern are surprised to learn that half of the town's population before the Civil War was African American. As a matter of fact, in 1860, New Bern has the largest population of African Americans in the state, and one fourth of the members of the black community were free.

These free blacks owned and operated a variety of businesses, accumulated real estate, and owned fine homes. In addition, many free African Americans owned slaves. After the Civil War, New Bern boasted an enterprising, educated African American elite. African American leaders included politicians, doctors, lawyers, businessmen, teachers, investors, and religious leaders.
New Bern Tours will host a Trolley Tour with a special emphasis on the African American community living in New Bern during the 19th century. Travel on the Trolley with our professional guides through historic downtown New Bern to learn about these people and see the places where they worked and lived.
