King will take over on Jan. 1, after current director Kathy Wilcox retires.
The Flagler Beach Historical Museum’s board of directors has selected Patti King as the museum's new director, according to a news release.
King, who serves on the board, will take the position of current director Kathy Wilcox, who has been director since 2018 and is retiring in December.
