The historical marker indicates the longtime New Bern residence of George Henry White before his election to Congress.
As is indicated by the pictures:
1) The aluminum cladding on the post holding the marker is damaged and separating from the post.
2) The post holding the marker is lending to one side at about 80 degrees versus being positioned 90 degrees with the ground.
3) Several of the screws connecting the marker to the post top are missing and consequently the marker is tilled to one side versus being completely vertical on the post.
4) The wording on the marker and the background paint are fading and in need of a fresh coat of paint.
Concerned citizens of New Bern, NC and others are encouraged to assist in taking action to get the George Henry White historical marker restored. The marker is located at the intersection of Metcalf and Broad Streets, New Bern, NC.
