  • Very interesting history surrounding Penelope Barker and her house. We loved the story about her Edenton tea party and the British response in a political cartoon. This should be a must-see on a trip to this lovely, vibrant town. Just across the street from the house, we signed up for a tour of the harbor on the Liber-Tea with Captain Mark. He was well-versed in the town's fascinating history, a gracious host, and an informative and delightful tour guide.
  • Interesting historic items; nice gift shop and clean restroom. Friendly staff.
  • The full name today is: Penelope Barker House Welcome Center. It is a information center, historic site and gift site with a living room. I have had the pleasure of training in the living room overlooking the Edenton Bay. Penelope Barker was an activist in the American Revolution who in 1774 organised a boycott of British goods known as the Edenton Tea Party. A nice piece of history in downtown Edenton NC.
  • Quaint Town with Lots of History and unusual Lighthouse
  • Staff inside greeted some visitors but not all
