History & Heritage, Inc
Jones County History and Heritage, Inc. originated in 2002 during a meeting of Jones County P.L.A.N. (People Looking Ahead Now). It was felt that there should be a county wide organization to oversee the preservation of the rich history and heritage that Jones County is so very proud of.
Our organization has evolved into an active
501C-3, non-profit organization, dedicated to giving back to the citizens of Jones County.
- To promote an awareness of the historic resources found throughout Jones County.
- To protect these historic resources for future generations to enjoy.
- To promote the local economy through ecotourism by making everyone aware of our resources and our deeply rooted heritage.
- To preserve the heritage of the citizens of Jones County in such a way that generations to come can take pride in their lineage.
