The Bahamas Historical Society is a non-profit cultural and educational organisation dedicated to stimulating interest in Bahamian History and to the collection and preservation of material relating to that history.
One of the society's main objectives is to improve its Museum and to open it more frequently to the public.
Society programmes and publications are made possible by membership dues, donations and advertisements in the Journal.
The Society is governed by its Articles of Association. The Annual General Meeting is held during the month of April.
Bahamian artist, Mr Alton Lowe kindly designed the crest for the Bahamas Historical Society, which appears on this website.
It was being used for the first time in connection with the celebration of the society's twenty-fifth anniversary in October 1984.
The crest depicts a sailing sloop; these boats have played such an important role in the life and the development of the Bahama Islands.
