Craven County was created in 1705 as the Archdale Precinct of Bath County. The name was changed in 1712 in honor of one of the Lords Proprietors of the Colony, William Lord Craven. New Bern is the County seat of Craven County. New Bern was the first capital of the state of North Carolina (until 1794) after serving as capital of the colony of North Carolina. Tryon Palace was completed in New Bern in 1770 and a reconstruction is open today as a tourist attraction and historic site.

The Battle of New Bern during the Civil War took place here leading to the capture and holding of the town by Union Troops. New Bern is also the home of Pepsi Cola. It was here in the late 1800s that Caleb Bradham (a pharmacist in New Bern) invented the soft drink we know as Pepsi Cola. New Bern is at the conjunction of the Trent and Neuse Rivers.
