Don't forget to go to church.

This church is well preserved and is a wonderful example of early brick architecture. The fact it is still an active church is great.

St. Paul's is a wonderful Congregation in a beautiful historic 18th century building. The new Rector is wonderful and the people were very welcoming. It's a wonderful place to worship!

Beautiful, simple church, dating back into the 1700's and with a chandelier dating from 1450 (gifted to the church). Interesting graveyard, for those who like the history of such places.

This is a cute church but nothing like the big cathedrals of the world. We visited while on the walking tour. Our guide didn't know too much other than the material he had memorized.

Very historic and beautiful, St. Paul's is the 2nd oldest church building in NC. Very interesting to walk in and look around. The cemetery around the grounds is full of history and can be explored on your own. The very old and large trees on the property are beautiful, too. A must see while in Edenton.

It was a treat to see the interior of the Colonial Church and roam around its ancient cemetery. This was part of the walking tour. We also took the Trolley Tour of Edenton. Both guides pointed out people of interest who are buried at this church
