Tryon Palace Gets $20,000 Donation From Weyerhaeuser

The Tryon Palace in New Bern received a big donation from a local company.

Weyerhaeuser issued a grant of $20,000 to the History Center for naming sponsorship of its pine trees and timber industry exhibits.

Tryon Palace Director Kay Williams says this donation is part of an ongoing partnership they have with the company.

Weyerhaeuser also gave their support with the refurbishment of the Tryon Palace New Bern Academy, North Carolina's first publicly-chartered school.

    PERFECT!! This is how it should be. This is a tourist attraction for New Bern so people and business in that area should pay for it. Since taxpayer money was used to support Tryon Palace it should have been free for North Carolina residents and it was not.

    Seems like they are wasting their money but of course it is theirs. Donation to a school system would make more sense and possibly improve the education of their future employees.
