Historic Edenton State Historic Site, Presidential Ball for James Monroe
Event Description: 

Coinciding with Edenton's Pilgrimage of Historic Homes, an anniversary ball for President Monroe makes Edenton truly a Victorian-era image. Join the Friends of Historic Edenton State Historic Site on April 13 for an evening of dinner and dancing at the 1767 Chowan County Courthouse.

James Monroe made a trip to Edenton on April 4-5, 1819, accompanied by the First Lady and Secretary of War, John C. Calhoun. The town welcomed him with a 21-gun salute and public dinner at the 1767 Chowan County Courthouse. 200 years later you're invited to attend a commemorative ball organized by the Friends of Historic Edenton State Historic Site. A costumed James Monroe will be in attendance as a historic interpreter. Period music fills the room and sets the mood for ballroom dancing. A dinner inspired by the times will also be served. Put on your best formal wear – Victorian attire if you have it – and come to the 1767 Chowan County Courthouse for this event.
