Historic Halifax

Located on the Roanoke River, the town of Halifax developed into a commercial and political center at the time of the American Revolution. North Carolina's Fourth Provincial Congress met in Halifax in the spring of 1776. On April 12 that body unanimously adopted a document later called the "Halifax Resolves," which was the first official action by an entire colony recommending independence from England. Guided walking tours take visitors into several authentically restored and furnished buildings and show them areas of special interest. A self-guided tour includes a map of the site and wayside exhibits provide educational information regarding the buildings and area.
