New at Deepwood

Introducing our new Executive Director

Lynne Richardson


The Friends of Deepwood Board of Directors is pleased to announce that Lynne Richardson has been named as the new Executive Director.  Lynne is a seasoned professional with more than twenty years of experience in the museum and art fields.  She recently participated in the Board’s retreat and strategic planning session, and will lead Deepwood in its efforts to expand its services to the Salem community.

Before joining Historic Deepwood Estate, Lynne held the position of Museum Supervisor of the Hi-Desert Nature Museum in Southern California.  Prior to that, she served as the FBI’s Art Theft Program Manager in Washington, D.C.  Lynne was instrumental in creating the FBI’s first rapid deployment Art Crime Team and oversaw the recovery of more than $300 million in stolen artwork. 

Lynne began her museum career at the Autry Museum of Western Heritage in Los Angeles after receiving her Master’s degree in Museum Studies from San Francisco State University.  She also held positions at Monticello, Thomas Jefferson’s historic home in Charlottesville, Virginia, and the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of Natural History.

Lynne will assume leadership duties at Deepwood on October 6.

Wedding Trends, Memories, and Special Moments


An exhibit of wedding dresses spanning over 100 years placed into their historical contexts, allows visitors to Deepwood to dive in and gain a greater understanding of social history through the lens of love and marriage. 

Special collection items will be showcased in this exhibit which encourages the community to think and talk about what all wedding can entail; from the planning process and trends, to current events and special memories. 

The exhibit opened to the public June 18th and runs through September.  Bring a copy of a family wedding photo for free admission and tour.  Otherwise, normal tour fees apply.  See Tour Hours for more tour information.
