“Beautifully preserved historic home”
Reviewed 30 January 2014

This beautiful property standout amongst the many, many, fine historic homes Edenton has to offer. Right on the main street in center downtown Edenton, one can't help but notice the interesting cupola riding above the home's roof, for which it is named. In side they offer docent lead tours. The rooms are furnitured with both original and reproduced period pieces as well as decor and fittings. The staircase is a beautiful dark wood that begs for you to climb. Up top, you're allowed to ascend into the cupola itself, one at a time, and enjoy the beautiful view overlooking the town and Chowan River. Maybe a little boring for children and those seeking more flash, but interesting and worth the visit for history lovers.

“Picture Visit”
Reviewed 21 November 2013

Had heard much about the Cupola House and wanted to go to Edenton to take pictures of it. I enjoyed taking the pictures of it and the main street since it is located right there. Great way to spend about an hour.

“Historic”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

Make sure the guide/docent tells you the history of the owners of the house! It has a lovely little 18th-century-style garden, too.
