Newbern is considered to mostly a sleepy little town that rolls up the sidewalks at dark. Appearance can be deceiving to the eyes. Newbern more than doubles in size by 8:00 am when over 2300 teachers and students arrive for school, add in the nearly 2000 jobs on first shift at the numerous industries combined with the retail businesses and over 6000 vehicles that travel Hwy 77 to connect to the Interstate, we explode at the seams. Newbern is all hustle and bustle for the next 14 hours then we settle down for the night excited about a new day in our wonderful little sleepy town. The Newbern area was known to have settlers as early as 1839. In 1850 Mr. Owen Philyou of New Bern, North Carolina staked a claim in the area and erected the first known home. A store and home was erected on or near the city triangle (Court Square) in the fall of 1851, and at this point was considered a point of trade within Dyer County. It is assumed and accepted by local historians that Newbern was named for the birthplace of Owen Philyou.
