UPDATE: New Bern, NC – Congratulations, Nancy Hollows, owner of Nancy Hollows Real Estate (624 Hancock Street, New Bern, 252-636-3177) for participating in our contest and being the FIRST person to guess the correct name of the ”mystery building” - The Rhone Hotel located at 512 Queen Street, New Bern, NC!

Nancy definately knows local real estate properties!

“The Historic Rhone Hotel was built in 1923 and owned by three sisters: Henrietta, Amy, and Charlotte Rhone. It was used as lodging for blacks who were not welcomed in white hotels. At that time, there were no accommodations for black people. There were a lot of north-south travelers and they needed someplace to stay. Charlotte Rhone was the first black woman registered as a nurse in North Carolina.” - provided by Mrs. Mary Peterkin

The Rhone Hotel is on the Trail of Flames Tour. Contributions to help in this special project can be sent to Uptown Business & Professional Association (UB&PA), PO Box 14182, New Bern, NC 28561. Please contact the UB&PA at 252-288-5716 to arrange a Tour of the Trail of Flames!

About New Bern Now
Editor-in-Chief, Wendy Card, founded New Bern Now in April 2009. There were a number of reasons she developed the website. While stationed in Washington DC, she had 30 days to transfer to Naval Hospital Cherry Point and didn’t know much about the area. She was frustrated because there wasn’t a central location on the Internet for information about New Bern. Wendy retired from the Navy in Oct 2007. When our economy dived, she was trying to find her way in life and decided to give back to the community by creating a website that provided a “One Stop, Information Shop” to help people find out what’s happening in our community along with creating a free business listing to help business owners who couldn’t afford to advertise.
