Halifax County 4-H...

The Halifax County 4-H Rural Life Center has 6-7 miles of trails for horseback riding and hiking. There are various types of terrain that suit beginners to advanced. The trails wind their way through beautiful pines and skirt around fields, offering a chance to see nature at its finest. There is a fishing pond and a premier 18-hole disc golf course. This location is also home to the Halifax County Horse Council, which hosts regional events using the center's two lighted riding arenas and permanent concession stand.

The Center can also accommodate groups. There is an outdoor conference/meeting space for up to 40-45 people, along with a high-low ropes course, a horse arena with a 16-stall barn, various farm buildings and museums on the property, a picnic shelter, and a full-service catering kitchen.

The 4-H Center is also home to Allen Grove Rosenwald School, which was built in 1922. It was used to educate minorities from the 1920's until the 1950's. The whole facility is over 345 acres and is bordered by Little Quankey Creek.

The Center was originally built by Halifax County in 1923 to be used as the County Home. In the mid 1950’s, it was changed to a rest home where it remained in use until the early 1970’s. Once the rest home closed, the center remained vacant until the early to mid 1980’s when the Cooperative Extension Service decided to make it their 4-H Camp. After much work and renovation, it is today the 4-H Rural Life Center.
