Grab your colleagues, classroom, wedding party or other special large group, and start planning a retreat to the stunning waterfront Eastern 4-H Center, a relatively new, (built in 2001), and hard-to-miss attraction in the heart of Eastern North Carolina in Columbia.
The western-most county in the Albemarle Region, Halifax bridges the coastal plain and the piedmont. The Roanoke River, a colonial trade route linking the interior of the state with the Albemarle Sound, brought the towns of Halifax, Weldon, Roanoke Rapids, and other Halifax County communities into the the vast river-town network of coastal North Carolina.
Often called North Carolina's "cradle of history," Historic Halifax is the birthplace of the "Halifax Resolves," the first official action by an entire colony recommending independence from England. It is the document that gave rise to the creation of the Declaration of Independence. This is a "must see" for anyone visiting our area.
