Halifax Harvest Days celebrated the county's past, present and future today.

The past was remembered through the official designation of the Allen Grove Rosenwald School receiving its National Register of Historic Places designation.

The present was celebrated through music, EMS demonstrations and livestock demonstrations while the future was celebrated through the dedication of the new recreational facilities on the grounds of 4-H Rural Life Center where the annual event is held.

The Rosenwald school is one of 46 schools built in Halifax County.

Rosenwald Schools are named after Julius Rosenwald, president of Sears and Roebuck, who established a fund that eventually helped build more than 5,000 schools in the rural south for African-American children.

Construction of the new recreational facilities was funded by the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust, the North Carolina Parks & Recreation Trust Fund, Dominion Energy and the North Carolina Agricultural Water Resources Assistance Program.
