2. Chowan County North Carolina. St. Paul's Episcopal Church, located at 100 West Church Street in Edenton, is the second oldest church building in North Carolina and the oldest in regular use. It is a landmark in the development of religious architecture in the state. Described by architectural historian Thomas T. Waterman as "an ideal in village churches," the handsome flemish bond brick edifice is one of the most important colonial period buildings in Edenton; indeed, in 1856, David Hunter Strother, writing under the name "Porte Crayon," referred to the church as the "pet" of the town.
