Janel Longnecker was one of our earliest recruits as a volunteer. She has organized all the family and historical photos, compiled the geneology of the Behrens-Eaton family and is now working on notebooks detailing early Shasta County families and events.
Alicia Coughlin, wife of one of the governors has a background in office management, so she runs the office and in general keeps us organized and supplied with whatever it takes to run a museum. A native of Shasta County she brings a lot of historical perspective to our endeavors.
Marsha Andersen- Every organization in this day and age needs a computer expert and fortunately for us Marsha is that! Whether it be newsletters, emails, or webpages she does it.
Research is another important aspect of our mission and her expertise fills the bill, which includes being a real “ham” in our theatrical presentations.
Roger Longnecker, who is now retired from a long career as a Shasta High history teacher has truly found a wonderful niche at the museum as he is painstakingly cataloging the books in our wonderful library.
Although books cannot leave the museum the public is invited to come in and enjoy are extensive collection of local history books as well as research papers done by Judge Eaton, his mother Edna and Mary, Shasta High and Shasta College students.
Jeff Peterson was an avid historian for years and finds great pleasure in searching for hidden facts. His desire for details and uniqueness allowed him to ferret out some very interesting facts. Baseball was also his passion.
We miss Jeff, his humor and his style. RIP Jeff.
