Walking into this building reminded me of experiencing the preserved history of Williamsburg, VA. The cemetery outside has very old stone markers. Be sure to grab a walking tour brochure from the visitor center to help you understand the significance of this congregation in Edenton's history.

Our lovely guide from the cupola house walked us over to the beautiful St Paul's church which is full of history. We also borrowed an umbrella from the church and carefully walked in the rain around the beautiful tombstones, also rich in history

Step inside and witness 250 years of history in one of the state's oldest sanctuaries. The architecture is fairly simple, yet extraordinary. Explore the cemetery that surrounds the church, and take note of the family names and famous founders of the state and country.

We wandered up the street to see this historic church and its grounds. For a colonial building, the main church seemed in good shape. It was interesting to see the sectioned off pews like boxes at the theater. We were very respectful during our visit and viewed the stained glass, alter and pews. Interesting that there are at least two... More

The church grounds have graves dating back to the 1700's. Inside the church is very plain with interesting plaques commemorating local notable persons. Free admission. The unlocked door is in the back under the steeple. Very calming and peaceful experience

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.
