Walking Tour of Edenton - second part
" Under Construction"
This house was built from a pattern book according to our guide.
Ice was cut from Albemarle Sound (which is fresh water) and stored in this ice house for use in the summer.
Josephine Leary was a black entrepreneur. She built this building for one of her businesses. It is one of the outstanding ones in the business district with an elaborate Victorian pressed metal facade.
Cupola House (which is on the walking tour) is considered one of the finest wood structure Jacobean style houses in the South. The interior is not open to the public except on the walking tour through the Visitor's Center. A National Historic Landmark.
The downstairs woodwork of Cupola House was sold by the home's owner to the Brooklyn Museum because she needed money, so this is a reproduction. The people of the town rescued the original staircase and upstairs woodwork.
The table came from the Edenton School of Cabinet makers and is constructed of mahogany, oak and yellow pine. It is one of three drop leaf tables, which, when joined would have made a dining room table 12 feet long. The table is said to date from 1740-1765.
Looking out the upstairs window at the knot garden.
Main street of Edenton down by the waterfront. The Confederate Soldier's monument is in the center of the street and Cupola House is behind it.
