Edenton, NC is breathtaking in spring – the colonial houses,
the landscape, the old plantations … all speak history

On April 29 and 30, 2011, fourteen of these original private homes, dating from 1764 to 1910, will be open to the public for Edenton's Biennial Pilgrimage of Homes and Countryside.
The Edenton Woman's Club has sponsored this event since 1949, when author Inglis Fletcher co-chaired the first event.
The seaport town of Edenton, in Chowan County, North Carolina, has been called the "South's Prettiest Small Town." Azaleas and dogwoods bloom everywhere in town and the surrounding countryside where some of the plantations on the tour are located.
Wandering through this small town, down by the waterfront, you might want to grab a rocking chair and sit a spell under a magnolia tree. That is just fine with the good folks of Edenton.
