The Wake County Historical
Society was organized in 1957. The mission of the society was to help
preserve the history of Wake County and to educate the public about the
important events that happened in Wake and surrounding counties. The
society offers interesting programs, tours, trips, social events, an
annual meeting, and a newsletter. Its projects have helped to preserve
and/or to restore many historic aspects of Wake County. If one appreciates the past, they will be better able to understand the
present and influence the future.
The society invites you to join us in its quest to understand our
history and to help preserve it.
