Abstract:
British colonists began constructing royal governor William Tryon's palace in 1767 complete with landscaped grounds. Plans or details concerning the landscaping do not exist but when but historical drawings of New Bern and archaeological excavations around the property influenced the contemporary gardens. Morley Jeffers Williams advised the layout of the recreated 18th-century English gardens around the palace, and his designs and procedures are described.
