Learn more about Chowan County

Chowan County is the smallest county in NC geographically speaking but more than makes up for it in charm and appeal. The county seat of Edenton is steeped in history, serving as the second capital of the province of NC from 1722 to 1743. Edenton was the first permanent European settlement in the state of North Carolina. Selected by Forbes magazine as one of Americas prettiest towns, you don’t have to search far to find historical landmarks and points of interest. From the colonial era courthouse (1767), to the Penelope Barker house (home of Edenton’s own Tea Party), Edenton is filled with opportunities to explore, sight see and learn. 

A walk through the downtown area serves almost as a time portal to experience small town life. Authentic Architecture from the 18th, 19th and 20th century, many sites registered as National Historic Landmarks as well as the Mill Village area, all create a great walking tour with plenty of things to see.  An abundance of restaurants and local shops as well as the beauty of the Chowan River water front make for a can’t miss experience. 

Part of the larger Albemarle Area, the entire region is known for its small town charm and is a great place to live, work and retire. With its local amenities and proximity to the Outer Banks of NC and Hampton Roads VA the residents of the region have access to so much. Within the Hampton Roads metro area you will find a Norfolk International Airport, shopping, chain and local restaurants, along with art and cultural activities, events and venues. The area is served by the high quality medical professionals at Sentara Healthcare. And Vidant Medical.
