Halifax County is located in the northeastern part of North Carolina and was created in 1758 from a portion of Edgecombe County. Named after George Montagu-Dunk, the second Earl of Halifax, the county has a significant historical background. Halifax played an essential role in the early history of North Carolina, particularly as it pertains to the state's involvement in the movement for independence.

Halifax city was established as a trade center along the Roanoke River, with the region's fertile soil making agriculture the primary economic activity. This led to the development of plantations, cultivated mainly by an enslaved labor force. The county was directly involved in various military campaigns during the Revolutionary War (1775-1783).

One of the pivotal moments in the county's history came during the Fourth Provincial Congress that was convened in Halifax on April 12, 1776. The result of this meeting was the adoption of the Halifax Resolves, a document that called for the colonies to declare independence from Great Britain. The resolves marked the first official action by a colony calling for independence and put in motion the process that led to the American Revolutionary War.

A fun fact about Halifax County is that it is home to the historic site of a plantation called "Historic Halifax," which offers visitors insights into life in the 18th and 19th centuries. The site contains a vast array of preserved architecture from the colonial and early federal eras, including the Eagle Tavern and the Sally-Billy House. This rich history offers a unique opportunity for visitors to immerse themselves in the region's past and learn about the foundations of the great state of North Carolina.
