Nearby Edenton, is linked historically to the colonial and revolutionary era, was the capital of the colony for over twenty years from 1722 to 1743. On the heels of the Boston Tea Party protest on December 16, 1773, North Carolinians in Edenton staged a similar protest, the Edenton Tea Party, in support of American independence. Fifty-one women met on October 25, 1774, in Edenton with an agenda not unlike that of the fifty men in Boston Harbor, their shared cause being a protest against “taxation without representation.” Some of the women gathered at the home of Mrs. Elizabeth King, a prominent member of the Edenton community. The house, just off the courthouse green, was pulled down in 1876.

Penelope Barker, wife of Thomas Barker, treasurer of the Province of North Carolina is believed to have organized the party, developed the resolution, and sought the signatures of 51 women from the surrounding communities. The women drew up resolves, declaring their intention to boycott English tea and English cloth. They stated, “We, the Ladys of Edenton, do hereby solemnly engage not to conform to the Pernicious custom of drinking tea,” and that “We, the aforesaid Ladys will not promote ye wear of any manufacturer from England until such time that all acts which tend to enslave our Native country shall be repealed.” Like the Boston Tea Party, the Edenton Tea Party was a bold demonstration of patriotism and the belief in individual rights.
