The Thomas McLin House.
A prominent local Coppersmith and merchant constructed this home for his daughter in 1822. While visiting New Bern stay in this historic 2 story federal style Apartment.
During the Great Fire of New Bern in 1922 the roof burnt, however the home was luckily able to be repaired and expanded in the federal style as two townhouse style apartments, as it remains today. The heart pine wood floor outlines the original 1822 floor plan, while the 1922 upstairs addition constructed after the devastating great fire has southern yellow pine wood floor. The original 1822 fireplace mantel remains, and the antique light fixtures make you feel as though you’ve been transported back in time.
You will be located within a short walk to many amentities such as shopping, restrauants, museums, and marinas. We are located 2 blocks from the historic Tryon Palace main gate and a couple more blocks from the NC History Museum. Whether you are touring the historical streets and sites of one of North Carolina’s colonial capitals or appreciating the neighborhood coffee shop, hunting for treasures at one of the many antique stores, taking a day trip to the beach, exploring coastal Carolina, or enjoying the micro-brewery a few blocks away, this is a convenient and great location to call home while you are visiting.
