Lincoln County Commissioner

Why do Oregonians enjoy free public access to coastal beaches? Lincoln County Commissioner and avid historian Bill Hall will address that question when he speaks at the Lincoln County Historical Society on “The Oregon Beach Bill at 100: A Birthright Preserved.” The talk will be at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 21 in the Carriage House next to the Burrows House Museum at 545 SW 9th St., Newport.” Commissioner Hall will discuss the story of Gov. Oswald West and 1913’s Oregon Beach Bill, which preserved the public’s ownership and right of access to the beaches.

Commissioner Hall is a native Oregonian who has lived in Lincoln County since 1987. He worked in local print and broadcast media for 18 years prior to being elected a Lincoln County commissioner in 2004. He is currently serving his third term in that position. He has a strong interest in history, especially the people and events that shaped Oregon.
