The Lower Cape Fear Historical Society, Inc. (LCFHS) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization committed to the preservation and promotion of the history of the Lower Cape Fear region since 1956. The Society concentrates on preserving records and disseminating knowledge of local history.


LCFHS has led the restoration and exhibition of the Latimer House, a noteworthy example of Victorian Italianate Revival architecture, since 1963. Within the walls of Latimer, LCFHS leads tours, educational programs and exhibits, and special events. The Latimer House is also home to our comprehensive collection of over 600 artifacts and an extensive archive and library. Since October 1957, LCFHS also publishes pathbreaking historical research in the LCFHS Bulletin.
