New Director

2009 brought a new director, Madeline Flagler, to the Museum.  Flagler sees the Museum as a porthole for tourists visiting Wrightsville Beach.  Flagler said, “Being a museum is very rewarding, it’s educational, it’s something the whole family can do and you can plan your programming around that – reaching different people of different ages.”
People are coming with a more relaxed mindset.  We don’t have formal tours.  On the other hand we have people come on the porch and sit in the rocking chairs and walk around and feel comfortable,” she said.  “Here you have a house that gives the experience of what it was like to come to the beach in a much earlier time period.”
