April 17 & 18, 2015
A North Carolina tradition since 1949
The 2015 Tour is almost here! Come enjoy spring and beautiful homes in Edenton!
The Pilgrimage of Historic Homes — two days of hospitality, history, heritage, gardens, architecture, antiques, Southern food, music and more — hosted by Edenton Woman’s Club since 1949 will welcome hundreds of visitors touring the homes, and will be greeted by members of the Woman’s Club and volunteers, who will share with them interesting facts and details about the history of each home.
There is much to experience! Guests will tour many of Edenton’s finest private homes, all at least 100 years old, hosted by docents in period costume. The event has been a North Carolina tradition since 1949, presented biennially.
Horse-drawn carriage rides, concerts, lectures, exhibits, special meals and much more are part of the festivities.
Edenton’s National Historic Landmarks — the Chowan County Courthouse (1767) and the Cupola House (1758) — will be open, as will the Penelope Barker House (1782), the Iredell House (1800–1827) and St. Paul’s Episcopal Church (1736–1760), all on the National Register of Historic Places.
Plan to come to Edenton — named “The South’s Prettiest Small Town” by Forbes — for the Pilgrimage Tour in April 2015. We’ll show you real Southern Hospitality!
