LCHS Announces New Executive Director

Faith Kreskey Takes the Helm

The Lincoln County Historical Society is pleased to welcome Faith Kreskey as the new Executive Director of our organization. Kreskey takes over from Steve Wyatt who led the organization for eight years before his retirement in March 2020.  Kreskey has over ten years of experience as a museum professional and was previously head of the Curatorial Department at the Lane County History Museum in Eugene. On her work in museums and historical organizations “I have a true passion for the inspiring and collaborative environment museums provide and am personally dedicated to history education and preservation.”

A lifelong Oregonian who grew up in Reedsport, Kreskey is excited to return to the coast. She also looks forward to the new opportunities to explore the history of Lincoln County and share the stories of our past with the community. On her approach to local history Kreskey says “My focus is always on how our ties to place bring us together, and what we can learn from the lives and actions of those who came before us.”
