2009 Preservation North Carolina Carraway Award of Merit

Each year, Preservation North Carolina presents the Gertrude S. Carraway Awards of Merit to individuals and organizations that have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to promoting historic preservation. The awards have been given since 1975 and are named for the late Dr. Gertrude Carraway of New Bern, a leader in the successful effort to reconstruct the state's colonial capitol, Tryon Palace, in New Bern.

The King's Daughters Inn has been honored with a 2009 Carraway Award for the preservation and restoration of the former King's Daughters Home. This Trinity Park landmark, designed by Milburn & Hester as a residence for elderly women, has been turned into an elegant small hotel. Many layers of remodeling had to be removed, but the most dramatic change was the restoration of the front hall, where a decades-old fire wall was removed and the broad staircase opened up. The 17 guest rooms have all modern amenities with a historic ambiance and the public rooms have even been furnished with original pieces.
