  1. The Society focuses on the same goals established early by its members: to preserve, publish, and educate. The Society maintains two historic structures, the Burrows House and the Pacific Maritime Heritage Center on Newport’s historic Bayfront, as well as the Log Cabin Research Library. The Society preserves the state’s largest collection of artifacts from Oregon’s central coast. For more information, call 541-265-7509. https://oregoncoasthistory.org/ Both Museums are open Thursday thru Sunday, 11am to 4pm. The Research Library is open Wednesday thru Friday, 11am
  2. Former President Teddy Roosevelt's initials can be found on the side of the current city hall building... Because of the deep ravines, dense forests and the steep mountains that characterize this area, the southern loop of the Kootenai was known as the Montana Wilds. Its ruggedness along with the fear of Indians kept it unsettled until gold was discovered in the mid 1860s. But not until the Great Northern railroad establish a freight division on the current town site, did it really begin to flourish. http://www.cityoftroymontana.com/history.html View full record
  3. James R. Meade, in making an address before the state historical society in December 1904, gave the following interesting bit of Saline Valley history. Mr. Meade made a hunting trip up this valley in 1859, starting from Salina, a small village then of about a dozen houses, and has said the the drift along the bluffs and in the trees indicated that the flood of 1858 had covered the valley above Lincoln to a depth of 10 to 15 feet deep. The people of Salina tried to induce him to settle there. He says: "Colonel Phillips offered me one-sixteenth of the town site and vacant claim adjoining, if I
  4. The Society was formed in October of 1968. In 1970, the City Council leased 5 lots along Cottonwood Creek (the old Washington Water Power grounds) to the Society. This allowed the hiring of an architect and beginning of actual construction. Funding came from membership dues, donations and a generous gift from George Kloster (a Harrington farmer). With construction and landscaping completed, the Museum was opened and dedicated on July 15, 1972. This was also the first Pioneer Days. The Museum portrays the evolution of Lincoln County. Starting with Indian artifacts and displays

  6. Few sites in the nation encompass the breadth of history seen at the Fort Stanton Historic Site. Early cultures lived along the Bonito River, leaving behind rich archaeological evidence of human occupation. Spanish and Mexican settlers established communities in the nearby area, long before the United States sent the military west to protect settlers journeying to the region from the indigenous Apache Indians who claimed the lands as their own. Named for Captain Henry W. Stanton, the Fort was established in 1855 and operated as a military fortification through 1896. The Fort Stanto

  8. Welcome to the Lincoln County Historical Website! Once one of the wildest of all western towns, Lincoln is considered by many historians to be the most authentic old west town remaining in the United States. The single road through town was once described as "the most dangerous street in America". Among the many Lincoln landmarks is the Murphy/Dolan Store, which became the Lincoln courthouse and jail, which then became famous when Billy the Kid escaped in 1881, killing two deputies in the process. Legend has it--one of the bullet holes from Billy's gun still decorates the courthouse wall.

  10. Lincoln Historic Site is unique in that it manages most of the historical buildings in the community of Lincoln. This most widely visited state monument in New Mexico is part of a community frozen in time—the 1870's and 1880's. Through a gift from the Hubbard Family Trust, the historic site now includes 17 structures and outbuildings, 4 of which are open year round and 2 more seasonally as museums. Most of the buildings in the community are representative of the Territorial Style of adobe architecture in the American Southwest. http://www.nmhistoricsites.org/lincoln

  14. The Lincoln County Historical Association (LCHA) was founded in 1954 by noted local artist Mildred Burrage. Our mission is to collect, preserve and interpret the history of Lincoln County, Maine, which once extended from Brunswick to Canada. Key to our work is the stewardship of three historic buildings: the 1761 Pownalborough Court House in Dresden, the 1811 Old Jail in Wiscasset, and the 1754 Chapman-Hall House in Damariscotta. Our three museums feature collections of textiles and costumes, tools, furniture, baskets, housewares, photographs, maps, manuscripts, and other ephemera that he

School children, in June, also come to the Historical Center to view the exhibits and learn about Nobleboro history. The Society has a fine collection of memorabilia and maintains records related to Nobleboro and its people. These are preserved at the Historical Center. http://www.nobleborohistoricalsociety.org/
