Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow!

John Wright Stanly House, original site at the southwest corner of Middle and New streets, ca. 1910.

With the local temperatures in the seventies, it's probably unrealistic to dream of a "White Christmas" this year.  We can always hope though, and think cool, frosty thoughts by looking at old photos of winters past.  Here are some snowy views of New Bern we acquired a few years ago. The photos date from about 1900 to 1910 and this is the first time we have made them available.

300 block Johnson Street, looking west, ca.1900.

Daniel Stimson House, 600 block East Front Street, west side, ca. 1900.

Academy Green, northwest corner of Hancock and New streets, ca. 1900.

Cedar Grove Cemetery fountain, ca. 1910.
