The Grant County Historical Society is pleased to announce that Dr. Rachel Lewis of Lancaster has been hired to be the museum director for the Cunningham Museum. She started November 1. This is the first time the Cunningham Museum has had such a position. She comes to the Historical Society with almost a decade of museum experience, working mostly for local and regional museums doing everything from processing archival material and collections items to writing interpretive plans and grants. She received her PhD in public history for Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, TN. “I’m looking forward to all the opportunities and challenges this position has to offer. Grant County has a wonderful resource in the Grant County Historical Society and it is a pleasure to be a part of it” said Lewis.
