Had heard much about the Cupola House and wanted to go to Edenton to take pictures of it. I enjoyed taking the pictures of it and the main street since it is located right there. Great way to spend about an hour.

Make sure the guide/docent tells you the history of the owners of the house! It has a lovely little 18th-century-style garden, too.

What a fine landmark, resurrected from shabbiness by visionary Edenton residents. The authentic 18th century gardens are lovingly tended by a crew of volunteers, and the interior has been beautifully restored, open for tours by appointment, and on special occasions.
