Elizabeth Connor

Elizabeth Connor is the owner of EWC Media, LLC and also the Executive Director of the Lake County Historical Society. She lives with her husband, two pugs, and has a castle in her neighborhood (literally). When she’s not out promoting Lake County or history, she is creating in her studio or exploring. These explorations have led her to some incredibly interesting places around NEO like the Concours d’Elegance at Stan Hywet and the shipwrecks of Lake Erie. She’s also been in the depths of the Cleveland Museum of Natural History’s specimen collections and rode in a B-17. She even watched the Walleye Drop in Port Clinton. You can contact her at info@ewcmedia.com or find her around Lake County – look for her behind a photography lens.
