Offcanvas Section

You can publish whatever you want in the Offcanvas Section. It can be any module or particle.

By default, the available module positions are offcanvas-a and offcanvas-b but you can add as many module positions as you want from the Layout Manager.

You can also add the hidden-phone module class suffix to your modules so they do not appear in the Offcanvas Section when the site is loaded on a mobile device.

Located in the northern Coastal Plain along the Virginia border, Northampton County was formed in 1741 from a division of Bertie County after settlers migrated to this part of the Albemarle precinct in the early eighteenth century.

Hertford County lies to the east, Bertie County to the south, Halifax County to the south and west, and Warren County to the west. The Roanoke River runs northwest to southwest along the southern border of the county, and the Meherrin River forms a portion of the eastern boundary. These two navigable rivers have been instrumental in the social and economic development of the county, influencing settlement and transportation patterns.

The county seat was established in roughly the center of the county and was known originally as Northampton Courthouse. When the community was incorporated in 1823, the county seat was renamed Jackson in honor of Andrew Jackson.
