City Hall

New Bern's City Hall is one of the most recognized and beloved buildings in downtown.  This imposing structure anchors the 300 block of Pollock Street and has a beautiful history stretching back more than one hundred years.  The Mayor's office is located inside City Hall, and the Governing Board as well as other city boards and commissions use the historic courtroom upstairs for conducting official business.
