Established in 1966, HWF has been dedicated to preserving and protecting the rich architectural heritage of New Hanover, Pender, and Brunswick counties. As a member-supported 501(c)(3) nonprofit, HWF utilizes various strategies to fulfill its mission, including a revolving fund, preservation easements, education, and advocacy.

With one of the most extensive plaque programs in the country, HWF honors the historical significance of the region through six distinctive plaques. The organization also offers educational programs, such as Tar Heels Go Walking, which provides educational tours for third graders in New Hanover County. Additionally, HWF operates Legacy Architectural Salvage, which offers a wide range of pre-1960s wood, doors, windows, and siding to help preserve the historic fabric of the area's structures.

By providing historic preservation easements and supporting the Preservation Equity Fund, HWF ensures the long-term protection and preservation of buildings, including historically significant sites like Maides Cemetery and Giblem Lodge. Furthermore, HWF collaborates with Cape Fear Community College to offer a historic preservation construction certification, contributing to the restoration of old buildings and boosting the local job market.
