For all you visitors – and even permanent residents – if you want to take a leisurely tour of our town and learn something while doing so: take the trolley!
The guided tour will show you all the notable sites throughout the Historic District and into the Edenton Cotton Mill and Mill village.
You'll learn what Edenton was like during colonial times. You'll see the house where Harriet Jacobs hid in her grandmother’s attic as a runaway slave before she went North on the underground railroad. And you'll learn about the many important people who lived in our town and shaped its history and our nation's history.
