The Prettiest Small Town in the South

The Prettiest Small Town In The South

What is it like to live and work in Edenton and Chowan County? Some came here because they were looking for a slower pace of life, looking to escape the traffic and chaos of big cities. Others wanted a quieter and safer place to work and raise their families. Many of our residents visited this area for a night and fell so deeply in love with this place that they never left.


Spend days on the water, get lost in the woods, lounge on the beach. Life is great here!
