The mission of the Society is to discover, collect, preserve and present the documents, artifacts, structures and properties of Del Norte County. The Society currently operates the museums on 6th and H Streets and Battery Point Lighthouse in Crescent City.

The membership with annual dues and the general public with donations, bequests, and grants generously support the Society. The Book of Memories is maintained and published to acknowledge those who include the Society in their remembrances. The Society also offers special events to both raise funds and awareness of the Society’s needs and objectives. The Society is a non-profit, charitable organization. Contributions are tax deductible. The Society relies upon donations and volunteer services to fulfill its mission.
