Nice to see the Vintage Cannons
Sep 2021
These are Vintage Cannons on display outside near the Barker House, Welcome Center, they add a nice touch to this pretty little Historical Town.

Following history’s unusual paths...
Jul 2020
It only takes a few minutes to read the history of the cannons and observe the ‘EB’ engraved on the muzzle for Edenton Battery. However the story is fascinating, how church and courthouse bells were collected, melted down, and molded into cannons in Richmond followed by how the cannons fared in the fortunes of war. Their subsequent and somewhat unlikely return to Edenton complete the unusual path of history.

Touch history
Oct 2019
It is fascinating to be able to touch a piece of the town's history. The story of these cannon, created from the melted down bells of the city, took part in many of the critical battles of the Civil War. Where they are now located provides a great view of the waterfront.

We enjoyed walking around
Oct 2019
We walked around and my spouse did some still photography shots. We're discovering he likes venues with historical themes. I'm fine with it if it means we'll travel! It's a very nice area. We were there near sunset and it was very pretty.

The canons make a wonderful backdrop for pictures and historically interesting. Does not take long but worth it.

Overlooking the water
Jul 2019
A beautiful place to overlook the town, and place to make pictures of the water, cannons, and lighthouse. Very nice little museum, and gift shop beside the cannons.

This was a quick walk by while visiting the lighthouse, more local history. It is amazing they have been preserved all these years. I love this town.

Worth A Stop
Apr 2017 • Friends
The Edenton Bell Battery Cannons are located just outside The Barker House and near the waterfront so easy to stop as part of your stroll around town. Both are in good shape and have quite a history.

Two side by side.
Apr 2017 • Family
Two trailer mounted cannons sitting side by side outside the old residence. Both are in fantastic conditioned but have a different finish on the barrel.
