Morrisette House is the cream/pale yellow house with a black iron gate and Auburn flag in the front yard. If you’re coming from the north, the house is 0.5 miles beyond downtown Newbern on your right. If you’re coming from the south, the house is on your left; if you reach downtown Newbern, you’ve gone too far. View our location on Google Maps.
