The Cashie (pronounced ca-shy-a) River Treehouses and Campground was a spartan but interesting site.

This tea party was: 1 – organized and carried out by the WOMEN of Edenton; 2 – did not include dumping tea into the harbor, but rather a boycott of East India Tea; 3- it was led by the wife of the British Tax Agent in Edenton. We took a tour through the streets of Edenton visiting historical buildings and learning about the early history of Edenton.
