“a revolutionary hotbed in 1776”

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.  Scheduled guided walking tours take visitors into several authentically restored and furnished buildings. Areas of special interest will also be pointed out to visitors. A self-guided tour is also available for those who do not have time for guided tours. For this tour, a map of the site and wayside exhibits provide educational information regarding the buildings and area. These include the 1760 home of a merchant, the house and law office of a 19th-century attorney, and the 1808 home of a wealthy landowner. The 1833 clerk's office, an 1838 Jail, the 1790 Eagle Tavern and 1760 Tap Room, and a unique archaeological exhibit are also featured on the tour.
