New Director For Historical Society


The Lincoln County Historical Society is pleased to welcome Faith Kreskey as the new

Executive Director of their 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.”

The Lincoln County Historical Society is a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving

and sharing Central Oregon Coast history. At this time our museums remain closed to

the public, but we hope to welcome visitors again soon. Please visit our website or join

us on Facebook or Instagram. 541-265-7509. www.oregoncoasthistory.org
