The year was 1712 – the United States as we know it didn’t exist – and Edenton was born. In colonial times Edenton was one of the growing nation’s chief political, cultural and commerce centers. Edenton became the site of a tea party to protest English taxes, the home to one of the largest seaports on the east coast, and the first colonial capital of North Carolina.
Three hundred years later, Edenton remains one of our most scenic and historic towns. To commemorate its 300th anniversary, Edenton turned to ElectriCities to create a commemorative logo for the celebration.
The town’s residents took notice. The logo became a focal point of the town’s anniversary celebration. Local organizations incorporated the logo in promotions and merchants ordered merchandise featuring the logo.
