SOMA: New Bern, NC

New Bern, North Carolina, is a city located along the eastern coast of North Carolina. It’s the county seat of Craven County and near several military installations — Cherry Point and Camp LeJeune, in Jacksonville. It is at the mouth of the Neuse River, making it an excellent inland port.

It’s named for Bern, Switzerland, so a lot of its old architecture reflects a Swiss influence. You’ll also see a lot of Southern charm with historic older home with tall windows and big porches.

These were taken during a recent visit to the city using my iPhone. It was a week before Hurricane Florence was poised to strike North Carolina. Hopefully, many of the things I photographed as still in tact.
