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.
