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!

American Made Glass Fishing Floats Exhibit Opening Event

Come join us at the North Lincoln County Historical Museum on Saturday, April 20th, from 11 am to 3 pm for the opening of our American Made Glass Fishing Floats exhibit from the Nick Simpson Collection. Nick has been a float expert and collector for over 55 years and has donated much of his wonderful collection to the museum. Nick and members of the float community will be here to answer questions about this beautiful new permanent exhibit in our upstairs gallery. We will also have some exclusive floats for sale, made by historic glass blower, Ro Purser, and fishing float coloring sheets for kids. If you are interested in historic fishing floats and want to learn more, you will love this Lincoln City Community Days event!

New Hours for NLCHM

The museum is closed in January, but when we reopen with new exhibits in February, our hours will have changed from 12 p.m. – 5 p.m. to 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. This is in response to the 4-5 o’clock hour being our slowest by far, and wanting to be open during the a.m. to try and catch some of the earlier crowd. So please visit us on Wednesday – Saturday, 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. in February! See you at the museum!
