Lincoln City is a great place to try new things, according to the Lincoln City Visitors & Convention Bureau, and the newest is a self-guided Heritage Tour featuring 14 stops that reveal the rich history of the region and its people.
The guide contains both recent and historic photographs of locations like the Dorchester House, site of the first Republican issue conference in Oregon; the D River, arguably the shortest river in the world; and the Connie Hansen Garden, gift of horticultural artist Constance P. Hansen and open free to the public.
The guide is available from the North Lincoln County Historical Museum, located at 4907 S.W. Highway 101 in Lincoln City. The Museum is open Wednesday through Sunday, noon to 5 p.m. (except major holidays). When you stop by for your guide, enjoy a visit at the Museum. Admission is free and the wealth of area heritage it contains is also free. www.northlincolncountyhistoricalmuseum.org. The guide is also available online at www.oregoncoast.org/heritage-culture.
Bureau officials say the tour was created through a partnership between the North Lincoln County Historical Museum and the Lincoln City Visitor & Convention Bureau and the deep and generous knowledge and commitment of Anne Hall, Museum Curator.
