What We Do

Dedicated to the preservation of the history of the Lower Cape Fear region, the Historical Society operates a Victorian era house which not only houses our historical archives and library, but our collection of over 600 artifacts.

We are a membership supported organization that provides educational and experiential programs to members and non-members alike. Memberships include free tours of the Latimer House in downtown Wilmington, use of our archives, membership events and book talks, discounts on all programs, a 10% discount in our gift shop, and more.

Interesting Info

The Society's activities include restoration and exhibition of the Latimer House, a Victorian Italianate upper-class merchant's home in the heart of Wilmington
The Society has adopted a mission of Keeping the Past Present and wants to be the go-to organization for historical knowledge of the greater Cape Fear.
