Anne Hall Gallery Opening

Join us on Saturday, June 22nd, from 11 am to 3 pm for the opening of the Anne Hall Gallery. Anne Hall, former Executive Director of NLCHM, dedicated 20 years to making the museum what it is today. In honor of her and all of the wonderful work she has done over the years, we are converting her old office-space into an art gallery. This gallery will show historic art from our collection and will later feature current local artists. We will be opening with a show titled “Painting History.” It will feature scenes of landscapes and buildings painted by historic artists, including Maude Wanker, Lincoln City’s most prestigious painter. Snacks and refreshments will be provided. This gallery will rotate often, so come see it while it’s up.

Volunteers Needed!

We are currently seeking volunteers who would enjoy greeting museum visitors. Previous host and cash register experience is appreciated as well as an interest in North Lincoln County history. We are looking for people to fill in to cover the front desk for an hour or two a week. If this sounds like fun to you, please call the museum at 541-996-6614 for more information. Thanks!

Digitizing History

The Sitetz Tribal Charitable Contribution Fund (STCCF) generously granted the North Lincoln County Historical Museum (NLCHM) with the funds to purchase equipment to further digitize the museum’s collection. This includes a large format scanner, computer, camera, and other equipment necessary for digitizing artifacts, photographs, and documents. This will allow us to preserve digital records which benefits museum staff, visiting researchers, and the community as a whole. Museum volunteers have already digitized hundreds of artifacts, photographs, and documents since this project set forth in December. Thanks STCCF and thanks to our museum volunteers!
