Historic Halifax is the home of the Halifax Resolves, which was the first official call for independence from England by the elected leaders of an entire colony. Today, Historic Halifax offers tours of many restored structures which include furnished houses, public buildings, and modern museum galleries. Tours of the historic buildings depart from the visitor center on a scheduled basis and a 13-minute orientation film offers a great introduction to the area's history. Historic Halifax hosts numerous special events througout the year, including Halifax Day on April 12th, Christmas in Halifax on the second Saturday of December, and 2nd Saturdays in June, July, and August. We hope you will visit Historic Halifax soon!
Historic Halifax is open Tuesday through Saturday 9 AM to 5 PM and is closed Sundays, Mondays and most state holidays.
