Halifax County's Rich History
Halifax State Historic Site
Halifax County's rich history sets it apart. April 12, 1776, the date commemorated on the North Carolina flag, signifies the Fourth Provincial Congress' adoption of the Halifax Resolves during a meeting right here in Halifax. With that action, North Carolina became the first colony to take a bold, official step toward declaring independence from England. You can step back in time in Historic Halifax and experience the lifestyle of those early revolutionaries. The Historic Halifax Visitor's Center offers a museum, brief film, living history demonstrations, and tours of ten historic structures and a unique archaeological exhibit.
