Rachel King

The Sanibel Historical Museum and Village welcomes Rachel King, of Sanibel, as its new business manager responsible for banking, vendor payments and payroll, as well as finance postings and reports.

She has experience with banking, payments, payroll, QuickBooks and reports, as well as experience in administration. King also has the background to audit finance. She worked as a tax examiner for the Internal Revenue Service and in administrative management roles with the United States Air Force.

“We’re thrilled to have Rachel on board,” Manager Emilie Alfino said. “We were lucky to find someone with her wide-ranging experience. She is a pleasure to work with as well, and we look forward to getting to know her even better.”

“At the same time, the museum is sad to say goodbye to its former business manager John Friedlund, who is retiring,” Alfino added. “John did outstanding and excellent work for the museum for more than four years. We wish him the best of everything.”

King can be reached at 239-472-4648 or at rachel@sanibelmuseum.org.

Hours are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.

Admission is $10 for ages 18 and older; children and members are free.

Free guided tours are held at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., based upon docent availability.

For more information, call 239-472-4648 or visit www.sanibelmuseum.org.

The Sanibel Historical Museum and Village is at 950 Dunlop Road, Sanibel.
