The purpose of the Long Beach, Mississippi Historical Society shall be to bring together those people interested in the history of the City of Long Beach and to coordinate their efforts in preserving and recording the history for future generations.

The Long Beach Historical Society shall seek to discover, collect, and publish material which may help to establish or illustrate the history of the City of Long Beach and the surrounding area. The Long Beach Historical Society shall provide for the preservation of such materials and for their accessibility, as far as may be feasible, to all who wish to examine or study them, and to cooperate officials to ensure the preservation and accessibility for the records and archives of the City.

Since genealogical records also are a part of the history of the people of the City, the Long Beach Historical Society shall encourage the preservation of all such records, and shall assist in making such records available through local libraries and organizations.

The Long Beach Historical Society shall cooperate with the Mississippi Historical Society and the Mississippi Department of Archives and History to collect and preserve materials of statewide significance so that these materials can be made available for research and study.
