St. Cyprian’s Episcopal Church

Record #:
After the Civil War, Reverend Edwin M. Forbes, a New Bern native, established an independent black congregation at St. Cyprian’s Church. In 1922, New Bern suffered a disastrous fire which burned mostly in black residential areas. The fire pointed out the need for a hospital for blacks, leading to the establishment of Good Shepherd Hospital.
