Our History

Recognizing Bath’s unique and rich blend of history, legend and land, a group of people formed a grassroots organization, The Historic Bath Foundation, Inc.  The Foundation was organized exclusively for charitable and educational purposes to serve the Bath area. Grants are offered by the Foundation to qualifying applicants to assist in preserving, restoring, and developing the historical culture of Bath. Founded in 1705, Bath is North Carolina’s oldest town, its origin and history are vital to our nation and every North Carolinian. The treasures of Bath belong to everyone.
