Featuring 18th and early 19th century history, North Carolina’s second oldest town was one of the fledgling nation’s chief political, cultural and commercial centers. The state’s first colonial capital, it was established in the late 17th century and incorporated in 1722. Its port provided slaves with a means of escape via the Maritime Underground Railroad before Emancipation.

Historic Edenton State Historic Site offers guided walking and trolley tours Tuesday through Saturday for walk-in visitors. Walking tours include interiors of c. 1736 St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, c. 1758 Cupola House National Historic Landmark, c. 1782 Barker House, 1767 Chowan County Courthouse National Historic Landmark, and c. 1773 James Iredell House. Trolley tours cover a larger area of the Historic District. Visitors Center includes exhibits, audiovisual program about Edenton history and gift shop.
