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

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

This historic church is charming. You feel it would be a pleasure to be one of the congregation. The surrounding graveyard is interesting to walk through.

This colonial church and its surrounding graveyard and buildings provide a look into the plain, ordered style of Episcopal church architecture and the historical families of Albemarle Sound life. On my visit on a Saturday morning, the church organist was practicing for Sunday services, providing an impromptu concert to enjoy while surveying the interior pew stalls, altar and stained glass...

St. Paul's Church has roots in the 18th century. Construction was begun about 1736 and the church was completed in the 1760's. Fire claimed part, but not all of it, and it remains a beautiful old structure. The cemetery is the resting place to many notable residents, and also has a plot of some of the earliest governors. Well worth... More

We were not able to visit the church on the inside (perhaps the next visit), but enjoyed exploring the graveyard and reading the inscriptions on the tombstones.

This old church and cemetery are well worth the visit. Situated beneath a huge old magnolia, it is a learning experience to read the tombstones of its inhabitants.

How grateful we were that the parishioners of this church allow visitors to come in to see the beautiful church and walk through the surrounding cemetery. The stained glass behind the alter is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen.
