The mission of the Hyde Co. Historical & Genealogical Society (formed in 1963) is to record the history of Hyde Co., NC, and its people. To that end, the Society holds spring and fall meetings for its membership (over 200 people) and publishes a journal, High Tides, twice a year. The Society has published many books on Hyde’s history and architecture, early marriage records, Bible records, census records, and deeds among other subjects. The books are available for purchase. The historical and genealogical resource library housed at the Mattamuskeet School Library (252-926-0310) is maintained by the Society and is available for research during school hours.
