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.”
Lincoln County Historical Society’s Annual Crab Krack
4pm, Sunday, February 9th

Treat yourself to a super delicious locally caught Dungeness crab dinner and live music in the company of your friends and neighbors.

The generosity of a long list of local restaurants and merchants also help make this annual event possible.
This whole crab feast includes various side dishes, an array of desserts, no-host bar, live music by Sons of Beaches, and both a silent and oral auction with special guest auctioneer Representative David Gomberg.
Event proceeds benefit completion of renovations at the Pacific Maritime Heritage Center.
