To achieve its mission, the Society will:

Collaborate and engage with other historical organizations in our region, recognizing that before 1777, our local history was also the history of Edgecombe, Halifax, Franklin, Bertie, and Chowan Counties and that rural and urban histories are interdependent and cannot be understood separately from each other.

Support the integration of the studies of genealogy and local history, recognizing that the study of each enhances the understanding of the other, and that the stories of places and people are intimately connected.

Pursue the inclusion of the history of all peoples of Nash County into its ongoing narrative of rural Nash County history by maintaining a supportive, collaborative, and respectful environment where anyone can pursue their particular areas of interest and share their knowledge and information with the support and encouragement of other members regardless of education level, experience, or age.

Uphold the standards of historical and genealogical research by educating and assisting its members in the application of those standards, while also honoring and sharing the legends, stories, and tales that have been passed down among generations.

Engage and educate the public around our local history, heritage, and resources.

*RNHS as an organization does not endorse nor will not endorse political candidates or their campaigns. We do this in order to be inclusive and open in regards to achieving our goals and objectives.*
