The Bakers of Buckland Society, Inc. was founded by a core group of people primarily concerned with restoring, preserving and protecting the historical lands, artifacts and history related to Henry Baker I of Isle of Wight, VA (1645-1712) and the many people and families that make up his descendants
Bakers of Buckland Society began with a passion to restore and perpetually preserve our cemeteries. Once we decided that not another generation will pass without addressing this situation, founding a nonprofit organization became a natural next step. Before we knew it, we progressed to the Federal tax exempt 501(c)(3) corporate status because we realized that cemeteries are only one portion of what can be made possible with passionate people like you and me.
Together we can build a network of people, connected together and intent upon sharing and preserving heirlooms and relics from our past. We also hope to help preserve historic landmarks and buildings, as the opportunities present themselves. In this way, we can bless the communities that occupy our historic lands. Historic preservation has a demonstrated positive impact on economic development efforts at the state and local levels. It is not simply a matter of aesthetics or quality of life, but also a tool for neighborhood stabilization and community revitalization that is connected to broader strategies of land use, smart growth and job creation.
We anticipate that the Bakers of Buckland Society will one day fortify preservation efforts in the communities situated in northeastern North Carolina, southeastern Virginia, and other areas of our nation where our Society may be led to make a difference for many years to come.
