James Monroe Exhibit
Jul 9 @ 9:00 am – Jul 28 @ 5:00 pm
James Monroe Exhibit @ Gateway Gallery in the North Carolina History Center | New Bern | North Carolina | United States

This traveling exhibit commemorates the bicentennial of President Monroe’s southern tour, highlighting his visits from Virginia south to North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Alabama, and west to Tennessee, Kentucky, and Indiana.

Modern-day presidents are readily recognizable by almost every American.  This was not true two hundred years ago.  Monroe’s predecessors rarely traveled, and there was, of course, no mass media continually broadcasting the president’s image or the sound of his voice.  Monroe’s 1819 tour was a follow-up to his highly successful northern tour in 1817.  Americans came out by the thousands, thrilled by the opportunity to see the president, and newspapers across the country gave day-by-day accounts of his progress.  Political differences were forgotten as Americans of both parties joined together in a grand celebration of the presidency, marked by parades, speeches, dinners, balls, receptions, and concerts.

Garden Lecture Series - August @ Cullman Performance Hall, North Carolina History Center | New Bern | North Carolina | United States

Our August garden lecture series, Saturday, August 10, features Charlotte Glen, the statewide coordinator for the NC State Extension Master Gardener Program, discussing “Perennials for Pollinators.” Are you seeking beautiful, low-care, flowering plants that will return year after year and attract pollinators to your landscape? Attend this presentation to learn about perennials that thrive in eastern North Carolina’s challenging climate, with a focus on varieties that support birds, bees, butterflies and other pollinators.

In addition to recommended varieties, the presentation will also discuss how to select the right plants for growing conditions in your yard, designing plantings for maximum benefit to pollinators, and share tips for establishing and caring for perennials so they will thrive for years to come.

An eastern North Carolina native, Charlotte has studied horticulture and gardened in the North Carolina coastal plain and piedmont, Scotland and New Zealand. She is an avid gardener with a keen interest in native plants, sustainable landscaping, and garden ecology.

This lecture is free and begins at 10 a.m. in Cullman Performance Hall at the North Carolina History Center.
