A must see in Edenton, the Cupola House is absolutely beautiful inside and out. Docents are very knowledgable You must get tickets to visit. If you can't visit the inside, still make sure to see the well maintained, lovely gardens.

Beautifully redone old 1758 home literally saved by the community of Edenton . Volunteer guide was both very knowledgeable and fun. Particularly nice gardens - an Iris in bloom on November 27th!

Beautiful Cupola house is rich in American history! The house is open for tours. You have to go to the visitor center on Broad street to get your tickets first.
