City Hall, also known as the Municipal Building, is a historic municipal building in New Bern, Craven County, North Carolina. It was originally built in 1897 by the federal government to house a post office, federal courthouse, and custom house.[2] It is a 3 1/2-story, brick and granite building with a 2 1/2-story wing in the Romanesque Revival style. The building has hipped roofs with dormers and features a bulky outsized square clock tower with a pyramidal roof. It became the municipal building in 1936.[3]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.[1]
