Edenton is a coastal town in North Carolina. It was the first permanent European settlement in North Carolina.


Edenton was first settled in the mid-17th century. Originally named Queen Anne's Creek, it was renamed Edenton in 1722 after North Carolina colonial governor Charles Eden. During the American revolution, it was a hotbed of revolutionary activity, most notably the Edenton Tea Party, a boycott organized in 1774 by local Edenton women. Today, Edenton remains the county seat of Chowan County and is home to 5,000 residents.
