Come, visit the fine colonial church, soak... More

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

The church has been active since the 1700's. Many famous founders of NC are buried there. The church is open to visitors and beautiful.

Some of the largest I've seen. Great place to take pictures and if you take time to read the tombstones lots of history to... More

My wife and I went to Edenton so I could take pictures of some of the historical structures there. I visited St. Paul's Episcopal Church and really enjoyed it. The church building open and I got to go inside and take pictures of the inside, in addition to the grounds. The cemetery located on the church grounds was so full... More

One of the oldest churches in the state, well-maintained, with a rich history, right in the center of town.

St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Edenton, IS charming, historic, and of significant architectural interest, but more than that, it's a vibrant 310-year-old parish, its dignity and grace warmed by delightful parishioners who take newcomers in and make them feel welcome. Visitors to Edenton might, as we did a decade ago, come for a Sunday morning of truly splendid music and... More
