Calling All Researchers

1937 Metsker’s Map showing North Lincoln County

The North Lincoln County Historical Museum’s Hendrickson-Link Research Library has recently undergone a revamp. This revamp has been made possible by grand funds awarded by the Oregon Heritage Commission and the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department, along with much volunteer power. The new equipment includes a vertical file for our newspaper clippings, a shelving unit for archive supplies, a scanner for digitizing archives, a printer, and much more. We are now, thanks to this grant, able to better assist researchers. We have many photographs, maps, obituaries, newspaper clippings, microfilm, books, and more in our vast collection of North Lincoln County archives (from Depoe Bay to Cascade Head). Appointments for free research can be made by calling the museum at 541-996-6614.

Museum Currently Being Painted

You may notice some commotion around the North Lincoln County Historical Museum. Our building is currently being pressure washed, having signage restored, and painted by local painting company, Quality Painting Service. In the winter we started our Paint-Protect-Preserve fundraiser to obtain the funds to paint the building. The community responded and here we are today! This building was constructed as Taft’s Fire Station in 1941. Later it became Lincoln City’s first City Hall when the town incorporated in 1965. The museum acquired the building from the city in 1994 and made major renovations in 2004. Thanks to the community, this building will continue to preserve and protect North Lincoln County history! We will be open during painting, so come give us a visit! 4907 SW HWY 101, Lincoln City.
