Edenton, known as Queen Anne's Town until its incorporation in 1727, dates from 1658 and was North Carolina's first permanent settlement. In 1715 the colony's Assembly passed an act providing for the construction at Edenton of a court house in which its sessions could be held. That building was completed in 1719. The second and existing court house was erected in 1767. The town was named for Governor Charles Eden who died of yellow fever in 1922. [1]
