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.
