North Lincoln Historical Museum -
Interest in forming a museum in north Lincoln County came about in the mid 1980s through a group of friends interested in antiques and local history. Early in 1987, they formally incorporated as a public non-profit organization, The Friends of North Lincoln County Museum, Inc. (now the North Lincoln County Historical Museum).
Soon after a search began for a permanent site to house the growing collection of artifacts and documents.In 1987 the museum opened at 5021 SW Highway 101, in the Taft area. A year later the museum moved to the old Groth-Gates metal shop at 11512 SE Highway 101 in the Delake area. Soon even this large building was not large enough to house the growing collection of objects donated by local citizens.
