The New Bern Historical Society has been celebrating New Bern's rich heritage since 1923. Membership support and tax-deductible donations go toward educational events and programs and stewardship of important historic properties. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit which receives no federal, state, or local funding, the support of our members is vitally important to us.
As a New Bern Historical Society (NBHS) member, you enjoy participation in and ticket discounts for Society events and programs while supporting our vital mission. You are also invited to attend two exclusive annual member only events: the Annual Mardi Gras 'Friendraiser' held at the historic William Blades House, and the Annual Banquet held at the New Bern Golf and Country Club.
Never miss a popular event: members get first notice. When you join, we will keep you updated on our programs and events through our Historical News, a quarterly newsletter and email updates. Members also receive a copy of the annual New Bern Historical Society Journal, a carefully curated publication of historical articles related to New Bern and the Craven County area.
To update your mailing address and phone number, or for membership questions, please call or email the NBHS office.
