Edenton is a town on the North Carolina Coastal Plain. It is the county seat for Chowan County.

Understand[edit]

Edenton is the second oldest town in North Carolina, incorproated in 1722. It is named for the recently deceased governor, Charles Eden. Edenton flourished with trade before the American Revolution. A hurricane in 1795 silted Roanoke Inlet thus obstructing sea shipping from Edenton, plus locals were opposed to railroads. Logging revived the town around 1880, a cotton mill and peanut plant helped propel the town into the 20th century.
