Serving as the County Seat since 1777, the Halifax Courthouse Historic District includes the downtown central business district. Located in the southern piedmont of Virginia, the Town of Halifax has been admired for its handsome houses, churches, and lush landscaping for over a century. Bounded by the shores of Banister Lake and the lower Banister River and surrounded by farmland and rolling woodlands, Halifax offers residents, businesses, and visitors the charm of a small town and the relaxed atmosphere of a rural retreat. One of the latest additions is Convergence Art Guild, an association of professional artists, writers and performers featuring exhibition space, classrooms and studios which can be rented by working artists; it hosts special events such as classic movie screenings, wine tastings and performance "coffee shops".
