The Cupola House has beautiful decorations at Christmas. During the weekend of the Christmas Candlelight Tour, the Cupola House is open and serves hot cider & wassail along with other treats.

A worthwhile historic stop in Edenton. The house tour is by donation--and they suggest $5 a person. That seems reasonable. The famed cupola was closed, but the rest of the house and gardens were interesting.

It was interesting to hear how this lovely house built in 1758 was restored after falling into such decline. Gardens were restored, also. House is currently furnished with period pieces and reproductions. The beautiful mahogany staircase is worth a long look. Buy your tickets at the Visitor Center for the walking tour. This house is on the tour. Don't miss... More

Our Guide from the NC Historical site was excellent and could answer every question, we asked about the house and its furnishings. The early woodwork and staircase are the highlight of this waterfront Colonial home/

Right on the main street in center downtown Edenton, one can't help but notice the interesting cupola riding above the home's roof, for which it is named. In side they offer docent lead tours. The rooms are furnitured with both original and reproduced period pieces... More

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.
