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.

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.
