A walk through historic Edenton, North Carolina
I’m a west coast girl, through and through…but one thing I will say for the east coast: there is no shortage of historic places to explore, and I do love photographing history.
Day Trip: Edenton
A few months ago, while my mom was here for a visit, we took a day trip to Edenton, NC. This charming historic town is located on an inlet of the Albemarle Sound. It is chalk full of historic buildings – some beautifully maintained, others in dire need of restoration.
We walked up and down Broad Street (the main street in the historic district) and along Water Street – aptly named because it runs along the water. We also took the trolley tour around town, which I highly recommend. You’ll see a ton of places you probably would otherwise miss, and get a large dose of history education while you’re at it.
Roanoke River Lighthouse (1886)
The lighthouse was a highlight of my visit. Shocking – I know. ;-)
I do have a thing for lighthouses…
- Roanoke Marshes Lighthouse
- Bodie Island Lighthouse
- Old Point Comfort Lighthouse
- Old Cape Henry Lighthouse
Cupola House (1758)
My visit to Edenton was much too short. There are several places I’d like to go back and photograph when I have a bit more time (and the weather isn’t so warm).
All photos above were captured, handheld with my Canon 6D and 16-35mm f/4 L lens.
