Halifax Historic District is a historic district in Halifax, North Carolina that was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1970. It includes several buildings that are individually listed on the National Register. Halifax was the site of the signing of the Halifax Resolves on April 12, 1776, a set of resolutions of the North Carolina Provincial Congress which led to the United States Declaration of Independence gaining the support of North Carolina's delegates to the Second Continental Congress in that year.

Much of the district is also contained within a historic site operated by the North Carolina Division of State Historic Sites and Properties, an agency of the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources.[2]
