1. Edenton United Methodist Church Marker
Inscription. On this site, from 1895 to 1983, stood the new Methodist Church of Edenton. It was a brick structure, a model of elegance and arrangement. The building replaced a wooden church that was located on Eden Street from 1857 to 1895.

Prior to that time, from 1809 to 1857, the Methodist Society worshipped in Sycamore Chapel on the corner of Church and Oakum Streets.

In 1978 a new facility for Edenton united Methodist Church was begun on Virginia Road. The sanctuary was completed in 1983. It is now their house of worship.
