Who are we?
Navy Lakehurst Historical
Society, Inc is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the distinguished
heritage of Naval Air Station Lakehurst, located in Lakehurst, New Jersey,
USA. Why? Although NAS Lakehurst will forever be remembered
as the site of the Hindenburg disaster, many
other significant events have taken place here. The rigid airships
Shenandoah , Los Angeles
and Akron all called the station home, as did
many U.S. Navy blimps. The station was the western terminus for the commercial
transatlantic flights of the German dirigibles Hindenburg and Graf Zeppelin.

In addition to NAS
Lakehurst's rich airship history, the station has served as a center for
research into aircraft ejection seats and carrier aircraft launch and recovery
The base's mission
continues today as the Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst/NSA.

an important chapter in American history.
