this is a very historic church that has been restored to a very high level but still has its historic charm. They just got a new rector in November, 2015. It is across the street from the Visitors center so it is very easy to find.

I toured this church because I read that one of my ancestors may have been buried here. He may or may not be here as there is no record of him, but the church secretary said that there are over 900 people buried here, but they only have records of 400. The inside of the church has been beautifully cared... More

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.

St. Paul's Church is much more than a historic relic, with a churchyard full of dead people.It is a living, active, welcoming place, with several hundred parishioners who happily put their resources where their mouths are, contributing to a better community, nation, and world, through their devotion, and generosity of time and talent. 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.
