A History of the Charles Slover House:
​The Charles Slover House was built by Charles and Elizabeth Slover over a period of four years from 1846 – 1849. Mr. Slover was a prosperous merchant and bank president in New Bern. He and his family vacated the house during the Civil War and lived in High Point until the war was over. During the Civil War, Union General Ambrose Burnside and then General John G. Foster selected the house for their headquarters. It served as headquarters of the Eighteenth Army Corps and the Department of North Carolina. The home was purchased in 1908 by Caleb D. Bradham, inventor of “Brad’s Drink,” now known as Pepsi-Cola. After passing through ownership by a New Bern family, the Guions, the home was purchased in 1960 by Mr. and Mrs. Laurence A. Stith, Jr.  Mrs. Stith was the internationally famous singer, Jane Morgan. The Stith family owned the home until it was sold to Anne and Jim Schout in 2012. It took the Schouts almost two years to restore the home.
