Faces in Business: Elizabeth Spilinek

Elizabeth Spilinek was recently named the executive
director of the Adams County Historical Society. Spilinek's
work with the historical society began on Lincoln Ave. and
led to her "Fountain to Fountain" tours, which start at
Alexander Park.

For Elizabeth Spilinek, being named the next executive director of the Adams County Historical Society was just the right fit for her at this time in her life.

From a young age, Spilinek has had an appreciation for history, historic places and especially historic architecture in her home state of North Carolina.

"My mother was a teacher, and on spring break we would go on visits to historical places like Kitty Hawk, Biltmore House, Tryon Palace, lots of historic architecture," she said.

Her mom went to see the gardens, but Elizabeth said that from an early age she was noticing the historic architecture.

So by the time she decided to go to college, a degree in interior architecture with a specialization in historic preservation just made sense.
