Lori with senior museum visitors.

Lori Strelecki has been the Director of the Pike County Historical Society since November 2000. Quite diverse in her pursuits, Strelecki’s historical background has taken her from the in situ canal town in Waterloo Village in Stanhope, N.J. where she conducted research (she even had her own mule!), to the bewitching town of Salem Mass. where she worked at the House of the Seven Gables. Strelecki’s work in the educational domain includes several years in Environmental Education and an assignment at The Theodore Roosevelt Indian Boarding School in White River, Ariz. where she taught 6 through 8th grade level Apache students on the reservation. There she taught everything from history to gym, and often ran what was called “the responsibility room,” where discipline was enforced. In her many years at The Columns, Lori has made it her priority to live up to the Mission Statement of the Pike County Historical Society as well as make the museum and its programming accessible to all. In addition to her varied work experience, Strelecki is a published author, poet and artist.
