The Dixon House, built in 1828, epitomizes New Bern's lifestyle in the first half of the nineteenth century, when the town was a prosperous port and one of the state's largest cities. Built for a successful New Bern merchant, Dixon House is a fine example of neoclassical architecture. Its furnishings, reflecting the Federal period, reveal the changing tastes of early America. The house was converted into a regimental hospital when Union troops occupied New Bern during the Civil War. Admission tickets may be purchased at the North Carolina History Center.
