National Register Homes
Currently there are twenty-seven Halifax County properties that have been listed on either or both the Virginia Historic Landmarks Register and the National Register of Historic Places as well as five groups of homes and public buildings designated as “Historic Districts” in Virginia.
One home will be added periodically and will include a detailed description and photographs of the exterior and interior, if available.
The Halifax County Historical Society invites you to become a member for the upcoming year. The Society’s mission is to bring together those interested in preserving historical facts, artifacts, and structures in our county. Members receive the quarterly Bulletin, a publication having articles and information pertaining to historic events, sites, and happenings. The Society sponsors lectures and activities relating to history and preservation and publish various books and other materials from court records, family papers, and other sources.
A new page has been added to "About the Society". "Bulletin Briefs" will spotlight an excerpt from past Bulletins so that potential members can see the interesting articles included. And for current members, we will provide a sneak preview of an upcoming Bulletin article.
