The Attmore-Oliver Civil War House Museum was originally built in 1790 by prominent New Bern resident, Samuel Chapman. It was enlarged to its present size in 1834. Of particular interest are the fine Greek Revival portico and two-story porches at the rear of the house. Today, the museum houses offices for the New Bern Historical Society. The Society plans soon to offer self-guided tours through the museum spaces of the first and second floors although staff suggests an e-mail or a call to confirm availability of tours just now. Attmore-Oliver House grounds may be rented through the Historical Society as a unique and beautiful wedding or other large party venue. The house is not handicapped accessible.
