Historic Edenton state historic site

Founded in the late 17th century, Edenton was one of our fledgling nation's main political, cultural and commercial centers. It was the state's first colonial capital and was once its second largest port, providing slaves with access to the Maritime Underground Railroad before Emancipation.
Today the state's second oldest town features a historic district with architectural styles spanning 250 years, such as the 1767 Chowan County Courthouse (a National Historic Landmark) and the home of James Iredell (who was appointed to the first U.S. Supreme Court). Exhibits tell many stories including the legacy of Harriet Jacobs, an escaped slave who became an author, businesswoman and abolitionist.
The state historic site is managed by the N.C. Department of Cultural Resources (www.ncdcr.gov). Events at Historic Edenton and other state historic sites are listed at www.ncculture.com.
