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 there in the spring of 1776 and adopted a document called the ''Halifax Resolves,'' the first official action by an entire colony recommending independence from England.
A guided walking tour takes visitors into several authentically restored and furnished buildings including a 1760 merchant home, a 19th-century attorney's office, the 1833 clerk's office and a jail.
The state historic site site is part of the N.C. Department of Cultural Resources (www.ncculture.com).
