Tryon Palace- First Capital of NC colonized in 1710
Trent and Neuse Rivers intersecting
I know most of you live off in other states and countries and have no clue where New Bern is! My hometown is a little pencil prick of a dot (and growing) in eastern North Carolina. This small town is famous for its twin rivers that intersect before meeting the sea, it is the first capital of NC (founded in 1710), and it is the birthplace of Pepsi-Cola.
