Remembrance

Today, the Edenton Tea Party is commemorated through several monuments and markers across the state. In downtown Edenton, there is a bronze replica of a teapot sitting on top of a cannon. Later the statue was donated to the town by Frank Wood's daughter. On one side of the teapot is an portrait of three women, one of whom is holding a lantern. On the other side is an inscription: "On this spot stood the residence of Mrs. Elizabeth King in which the Ladies of Edenton met on Oct. 25, 1774, to protest against the tax on tea." In downtown Edenton, there is also a marker located 1,100 feet from the home of Elizabeth King, which shares how the Edenton Tea Party was intended to "support the American cause."

While Americans would still spend a generation working out the implications of their revolution for women, the Edenton Tea Party is still honored and recognized as one of the first political acts on the part of women in the American colonies.
