MAY 2021

Remembering Richland Featured Exhibit

Due to the continual COVID-19 concerns, the Remembering Richland Exhibit has been postponed for opening until May 2021. We regret that it is not possible to showcase the memories, artifacts and stories at this time.

When we open the exhibit next spring, we plan to have a more comprehensive exhibit than originally anticipated and we are beyond excited to share it with you.

Also postponed until May 2021 (originally planned for this year) are:

VIP Social Event

The VIP Social Date for museum members and exhibit donors.

Richland Community Events & Homecoming Fair

A reenactment of the Richland Homecoming Fair penciled in for next May.

The Museum Board appreciates your understanding and patience during this difficult time of navigating uncharted territories. Please know that we have your health and best interest at heart.
