Edenton Tea Party

250th Anniversary Celebrations

Edenton Tea Party Trolley Tour

History, hospitality, and homes await you in the Colonial capital of North Carolina! In 1774, 51 women organized a written protest of tea taxes to which they signed their names and sent the protest to London where it was published for King George III to see! As the first organized political protest by women recorded in American history, this pivotal moment has created a legacy for Edenton and its trailblazing women.

Join us for a special Trolley Tour featuring the Signers of the “Edenton Tea Party” Resolves! Departing from the Penelope Barker House, you will be visited by costumed interpreters on the 45-minute Trolley ride. Presented by the Edenton Historical Commission

Following the Tour, you will drive to a special reception in your honor with tea, refreshments, and entertainment at a countryside home associated with one of the Signers.

$25.00 Plus Tax Per Person | 2:30-5:00 PM | Leaves from the Penelope Barker House Welcome Center
