Centenary Methodist Episcopal Church, New Bern, NC

October 24, 2017

Centenary UMC in New Bern, NC, is a curious agglomeration of parts. Built in 1904, the architect was Herbert W. Simpson, who is elsewhere described as a former undertaker. Much of Simpson’s archive is preserved at the New Bern Historical Society.

There is another curious observation to be made about this building but I’ll save it for later.
