The Roanoke River has blessed Halifax County, North Carolina with a bounty. A string of communities stretch along the river’s banks and have established their livelihood from the waterway. Today, a stream of museums, performing arts centers, and galleries flow from town-to-town providing an array of cultural activities for all who visit. Highlights include a trip to Roanoke Rapids and its Roanoke Canal Museum & Trail or an encounter with a 1920’s African-American resettlement community in the town of Tillery. Whether your Halifax County experience includes one or all of the towns along the mighty Roanoke, you’re sure to be immersed in culture and beauty.
