CSS Neuse State Historic Site and Governor Caswell Memorial [NC]

Glimpses into two of the U.S.'s wars can be found in one historic site within the city of Kinston. Here visitors can explore the celebrated life of Richard Caswell, the first governor of the independent state of North Carolina. They can also see up close the remnants of the ironclad gunboat CSS Neuse, a product of the Confederate Navy's ill-fated attempt to regain control of the lower Neuse River and retake the city of New Bern during the Civil War.

The site offers a short film, exhibits, tours, and occasional recreational and educational events (including living history events).
