Today, I’m going to delve a little deeper into some of our site seeing and give a few places to check out if you ever head to the adorable town of Edenton, NC.
A childhood friend owns an adorable shop called Summerhouse, so that’s where we started. We got some recommendations from the locals. We walked down to the Visitor Center and saw a trolley drive past, so we made our minds up we’d be going on a trolley tour later.
The Cupola House was built in 1758 and the gardens were restored in 1769. I can’t even get over how amazing this house and its grounds are.
Here’s the view of Edenton Bay with both the Courthouse Green and Queen Anne Park from the Barker House. Penelope Barker was one of the ladies involved in the Edenton tea party. Her house is the one with the amazing porches.
If you ever visit, you must shop at Summerhouse Interiors, Polka-Dot Palm, have coffee at Edenton Coffee House, and have lunch at Bistro 309. There are also some awesome antiques in The Shoppes on Broad. If I had a bigger car, a few pieces would have gone home with me for sure…
