- Town in North Carolina
- Rating 2.78 out of 5 9 reviews
Current Resident: Edenton was the North Carolina state capitol in the mid-1700s and home to signers of the Declaration of Independence, Supreme Court justices, and Penelope Barker, leader of the Edenton Tea Party (the first notable female political activism in America). Beautifully preserved houses from the 18th and 19th centuries surround the charming downtown waterfront in a wide variety of architectural styles, with many on the National Register of Historic Places. Edenton’s location on the Albemarle Sound lends itself to boating, fishing, and other water sports, with easy access from the marinas.
Everyday life is easygoing, too. Residents on their afternoon stroll wave at strangers’ cars. Long-established small businesses offer attentive customer service unheard-of in big box stores. The real estate market picked up noticeably in 2020, with urban dwellers fleeing COVID and troubled cities. Perhaps you too should stay in one of our B&Bs and rediscover the magic of a picture-perfect small town!
