Lord Tryon's Palace 2165

Lord Tryon's Palace 2165

A little history.....OK maybe a lot.

Prior to becoming Governor, William Tryon worked with architect John Hawks during 1764 and 1765 to draw up plans for an palatial home in the North Carolina colony. In December 1766, the North Carolina legislature authorized 5,000 pounds for the building of Tryon's mansion. As politicians are so like to do with taxpayer money Tryon told the legislature that the sum was not substantial enough for the plans he and Hawk had created; building it "in the plainest manner" would cost no less than 10,000 pounds without including the outbuildings he envisioned. Hawks agreed to supervise as Tryon said native North Carolina workers would not have the skills to construct such a building. Tryon convinced the legislature to increase taxes for the house In 1770, Tryon moved into the palace.

As you can imagine the colonial Americans were quite unhappy with the extra burden of taxation to fund this kind of lifestyle revolted and ended up with the Battle of Almanance in 1771 prior to the American Revolution. Governor Tryon left North Carolina and went to New York only having lived in the mansion one year.
After the American Revolution it became the North Carolina State Capitol Building and the first general assemblies took place here. When Raleigh became the state capitol these grounds fell into disrepair and in 1798 burned down. The home only stood 28 years. The only original building left standing is the stable.

Mrs. James Edwin Latham, a New Bern native, asked the state to assist in Restoring the mansion in 1944 and opened a trust fund for restoring the palace. The General Assembly organized the Tryon Palace Commission in 1945 and the restoration was completed in 1959 using the original plans and period furniture and paintings many of which were owned by Lord Tryon himself.
