My husband and I stayed in Edenton for our anniversary. It is a quiet little town with great history. The volunteer at the Barker house wasa wealth of knowledge about this historic home. There is no charge to tour the house and there are some great books regarding the history of the area available there..

The view looking at the waterfront from the Soundside of this house, moved to its site in 1952 is a notable North Carolina panorama, and the hospitality of the staff is warm and inviting. On my visit, the site housed a free exhibit on local author Inglis Fletcher, which provided an excellent review of her notable career as writer of local historical fiction.

This is a wonderful house with a lot of history. The furnishings were great. The volunteers were absolutely wonderful and informative. Visit Edenton's historic downtown area. There is something for everyone.
