About the Commission

Founded in 1903, the North Carolina Historical Commission is an 11-member board of professional historians and interested citizens appointed by the Governor in staggered terms. It is the third oldest state historical agency in the nation. This commission oversees the North Carolina Office of Archives and History which is located within the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources, and it is charged with setting policy for the state’s identification, collection, management, preservation, interpretation and programming related to manuscripts and other records, historical and archaeological artifacts, and historic sites and properties held by most institutions located within the department.

The North Carolina Historical Commission is the appeals body for the North Carolina Highway Historical Marker Program, provides advice and guidance to the state’s National Register Advisory Committee, and performs review and approval for new monuments located on state property. The North Carolina Historical Commission meets two to four times per year. The Deputy Secretary of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources serves as the Secretary of the commission.
