Home Movie Day

Do you have home movie film reels in your closet or attic? Do you wonder if these home movies are still viable? Would you like to see them again, but don’t have a projector to play them? Well, you’re in luck!

The museum will be hosting Home Movie Day on Saturday, October 8th, from 11am-3pm. Bring your 8mm and/or 16mm film in to be inspected by film archivist, Christopher Melton. Get advice on how to properly care for your films, and most importantly, get to see them again.

Connect with your own past, your family’s history and your local community with Home Movie Day! Come anytime between the hours listed above to participate. 

Sea Otters: Once Here and Perhaps Again

Join us at the North Lincoln County Historical Museum on Saturday, October 1st at 1 pm for a presentation by the Elakha Alliance called, “Sea Otters: Once Here and Perhaps Again.” Elakha Alliance Board President Bob Bailey will discuss an overview of the Sea Otter, their ecological roles, their historical presence and loss at the hands of the fur trade industry, and the Alliance’s work to return them to Oregon’s coastal waters.

Elakha (ee-LAK-uh) is a Chinook trading language word for sea otter, which were once plentiful in Oregon’s coastal waters. The Elakha Alliance was formed in 2018 by tribal, nonprofit, and conservation leaders with a shared belief in a powerful vision: an Oregon coast 50 years from now where our children and grandchildren co-exist with a thriving sea otter population and a robust and resilient marine ecosystem. 

The museum’s conference room can seat about 40 people, so come early to get a seat for this free presentation. 

Art at the Museum

The North Lincoln County Historical Museum will be hosting a free event, Art at the Museum, on Friday, August 26th from 11am-2pm. This outdoor event will feature the Oregon Coast Art Bus from Oregon Coast Council for the Arts. This mobile classroom features a variety of creative learning art projects for kids and families. We will also have a canopy set up with other fun art projects, like our pixie coloring book and painting stations. Families will also be encouraged to tour our free museum and visit our newly renovated Mildred and Marie Children’s Room. Hope to see you there!
