Size 1.5 feet of linear shelf space (approximately 41 items)
Abstract Tryon Palace was originally completed in 1770 in New Bern, N.C., which served as the first capitol of North Carolina. Tryon Palace was the residence for the governor and his family. The original building burned in 1798. Early in the 20th century, a major effort began to re-construct the original palace. The renovated Tryon Palace re-opened in 1959. The collection includes an album of photographs prepared for North Carolina Governor William B. Umstead relating to the reconstruction and restoration of Tryon Palace at New Bern. The album is dated September 1954 and includes maps and photographs of the area around Tryon Palace during the early stages of construction.
