Join us in our mission to understand and preserve Wake County history, celebrating 60 years in 2017!

The Wake County Historical Society was organized in 1957. The mission of the society is to 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 restore many historic aspects of Wake County. If one appreciates the past, he or she 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.
