Swiss cannons overlook the waterfront of Edenton Bay in Edenton, North Carolina. The cannon were brought from France for use in defending North Carolina during the Revolutionary War. The house in the background on the left is the Barker-Moore House, originally constructed in 1782 at a point farther up the street. It was moved to the waterfront in 1952 and now serves as a visitor center.
