Lisa White, of Eaton Ohio, is the Executive Director for the Preble County Historical Society. Lisa and her husband Todd moved to Preble County in 2014. Lisa and Todd have two children, Jake, who is a Sophomore at Miami University studying History Education and Tatum, who is a Senior at Miami University and studying English Education.  Lisa graduated in 2014 with a degree in Business Management. Lisa has more than twenty five years of experience working with small businesses and marketing. In her spare time, she coaches the Eaton High School and National Trail Colorguard Programs. She is excited to say the least to have this new opportunity to make a splash at the Historical Society. She hopes to bring all new events as well as bring some past favorites back with a twist. Lisa understands and appreciates the rich history that Preble County has to offer and hopes to learn more, and share more in the future.

Brittany Corwin

Brittany Corwin, of Eaton, Ohio is the Director of History and Collections here at PCHS. Brittany started her career here in July of 2020 as a volunteer, moved quickly into a paid internship, and now is a part-time staff member. Brittany is a 2021 graduate of Eaton High School and now attends Miami University as a history major. Brittany was born and raised in Preble County -- along with six generations of her family before her -- and has truly enjoyed studying local history. Brittany is a member of the Miami University Marching Band (Go Redhawks!) and plays the clarinet. She has volunteered at the Wayne County Historical Museum, and has built leadership through her work as a referee, compassion for Preble Countians through her work as a nursing home aide, and an inside look at grant writing in Miami University's Department of Grants and Contracts. Brittany has created a collections team of volunteers to finish the largest inventory and digitization project in the organization's history with an estimated 30,000 items. Our goal is to complete it by 2025! You can reach Brittany by email: or by phone 937-787-4256 on Tuesdays & Thursday from 2-7pm.
