As we explored, George and I stopped to visit Historic Halifax, a North Carolina Historic Site. There's a small museum there, which offers information on the history of the town, as well as maps to get to nearby historic buildings of interest. This was a very helpful stop, since we didn't know much about the area before. Admission is free, though donations are welcome.

We also enjoyed driving through Medoc Mountain State Park, located in Hollister, and the Roanoke Canal Museum and Trail in Roanoke Rapids. The museum was closed by the time we got there, but we enjoyed walking around the trail. We didn't see much of Roanoke Rapids, so I'd like to go back for a more thorough visit sometime.
