Edenton Tea Party 250th Anniversary


On October 25, 1774, an event of international importance occurred in Edenton, North Carolina, when 51 women penned their names to a resolution against the British Empire, forming the earliest known political action written and organized by women in America.

Beginning in October 2023, the Edenton Historical Commission will host a year-long celebration of the 250th anniversary of this groundbreaking moment.
