Kellenberger Garden

This walled garden, which can be viewed from the Council Chamber in the Palace, honors Mr. And Mrs. John A. Kellenberger, two of the original benefactors of the Palace restoration.

The garden has an 18th-century flavor, although it is unlikely that such a garden was part of the original Palace grounds. The Kellenberger Garden contains examples of many plants that might have appeared in original Palace gardens, some of which would have been brought in on ships that docked on New Bern’s busy waterfront.
