Have been here many times. The course is demanding and worth the effort. The clubhouse grill has great food and very friendly staff. The view from the dining room looks over the Albemarle Sound. Prices are reasonable. Never had a bad meal there.

Historic Edenton State Historic Site offers a wide range of tours of the historic district of Edenton, N.C. Our site includes: the Historic Edenton Visitor Center complete with exhibits, orientation film, information, and restrooms; the 1800/1827 James Iredell House, the home of one of the justices of the first U.S. Supreme Court; the 1767 Chowan County Courthouse, the most intact and longest running Colonial American Courthouses; and the 1886 Roanoke River Lighthouse, one of the few remaining screw-pile lighthouses in the United States. We also provide tours of the 1758 Cupola House, the 1736 St. Paul's Episcopal Church, and walking tours on the life of Harriet Jacobs, who was born into slavery in Edenton, but escaped on the Maritime Underground Railroad and became an authour and abolitionist. Site Staff lead the tours on the Edenton Trolley that departs from the waterfront as well.
My wife is recovering from knee replacement surgery and want to get away from home for a few days, and I suggested Edenton, a historic little town in Northeastern North Carolina, We went to the Visitors Center and the Welcome Center and saw a good video on the town's history. She decided she was not able to do the two-hour walking tour to visit all of the historic buildings, but we took the hour-long trolley tour. The guide was fantastic and knew this history of all of the old buildings in town. I would recommend either tour for tourists.

I was in Edenton for the day, and I am Very Glad that I went to this historic home. A lot of interesting history here. I came home to find out my 14yo daughter had actually heard of Penelope Barker and her political involvement. I wish I had brought her with me.

This is a lovely gallery and gift shop located in Historic Downtown Hertford. Most everything is handmade by local artists, and there is a large variety of items available. Choose from pottery, jewelry, fiber arts, painting and much more. They also carry postcards of local scenes. The gallery has frequently changing exhibits of artwork, and new items arrive all the time. It was a little difficult to find, as they don't have a storefront, but it is straight ahead as you walk in the front door of the building.

A tiny little museum in a cute, historic building downtown Hertford. If you are in the area, worth a visit for baseball fans. Also in the same building as the Chamber of Commerce where you can get local goods such as amazing peanuts and arts/crafts. Stop by the Woodards Pharmacy luncheonette a few doors down for lunch.

Sitting on the banks of the Perquimans River is an historic house from the 1700's. There also is a colonial garden and The Periauger, a copy of the boats that were used in Colonial times. There are tours Thursday-Saturday from 10:00-4:00.
