The Town of Halifax and the Halifax Village Association will host an open house Wednesday afternoon to share plans for the new town clock being purchased by the Halifax Village Association to enhance the town’s ongoing revitalization efforts.

The event, which starts at 5:30 p.m. at Town Hall, will offer the community a look at the design of the new clock and surrounding town plaza. The Hill Studio have been working with members of the Clock Committee and town staff to develop the plaza at the front of the Halifax Marketplace, located at 209 South Main Street, where the vintage-style clock will be situated.

The plaza will be a focal point on Main Street and is expected to eventually serve as a multifunctional gathering spot.

Citizens are invited to come out and learn about the development process, see the most recent artists’ renderings of the town clock and the plaza, and find out what steps will be involved in constructing this new centerpiece in historic downtown Halifax, the county seat for over 230 years.

Anyone seeking more information is invited to call the Town office at (434) 476-2343.
