Halifax County was formed in 1752 from Lunenburg County. The territory at that time included present Pittsylvania, Henry, and Patrick Counties. It is surrounded by Mecklenburg, Charlotte, Campbell, Pittsylvania Counties and the state of North Carolina. This whole area of southside Virginia is one of the most important areas of the state during this pre-1800 time period because of the major migrations across this portion of Virginia into North Carolina and South Carolina, as well as into other states to the west.
