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.

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 techniques.

The base's mission continues today as the Naval Air Engineering Station (NAES), Lakehurst.
