  • We loved exploring the gardens here and learning about the history of the house itself! We will definitely be back!  more »
  • Each historic site in Edenton is on tour at a different hour so you need to get the schedule first. Nice gardens also.  more »
  • My wife and I toured the Cupola House on Sunday afternoon. We were the only ones there so we had an opportunity to ask a lot of questions. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and made the experience really enjoyable. My wife's family is from nearby Gates County and her family lore says that her great grandmother lived in the Cupola House. We learned during the tour that the last member of the family, who owned the house, fell on hard times. She rented rooms out for a period of time at the point in time when my wife's grandmother would have been a young women; so, it's possible family lore could be true. We're definitely going to research this more!
  • Very charming historic house and gardens. Edenton is a delightful historic town.
