About the Kellenberger Room

The Kellenberger Room houses the Local History and Genealogy Collection of the New Bern-Craven County Public Library. The room is named in memory of May Gordon Latham Kellenberger. Mrs. Kellenberger was instrumental in the restoration of Tryon Palace, and upon her death, she left a large trust fund to finance local history projects in New Bern and Craven County. It was with funds from the Kellenberger Foundation that this room was built and furnished in a remodeling project completed in 1992. Materials in the collection consist of books, microfilm, photographs, vertical files, oral histories, and online databases
