REMEMBERING RICHLAND
Featured Exhibit
now through October

Experience what was Richland in the museum's main exhibit hall. You'll get a glimpse into how it felt to stand in the middle of main street flanked by murals depicting the north and south side of this one block long main street. Relics, replicas and stories will give you a taste of days gone by of the rural, simple town life in middle America.

RICHLAND STORYTELLING HOUR
Sunday, July 25th
2-3PM
Featuring Jim Montfoort

Come join us for a casual storytelling hour with Jim Montfoort. Jim went to grade school in Richland and has fond memories of the town. You're destined to have a chuckle or two as Jim tells it like he remembers it. You will likely hear about interesting town folk, kid pranks, card playing at Wolf's plus a few memories about the businesses and town itself. Light refreshments will be served.

RICHLAND HOMECOMING FAIR
Sunday, Aug. 29th
3-7:30pm

This event honors the long running fair that was last held in 1968, and then followed by the Richland Homecoming Potluck Dinners on the last Sunday of August every year until recently.

This is all about fun, food and fellowship. Although there won't be carnival rides, activities will include some of the favorite things we remember: kids' games, pie baking contest, whistling contest, storytelling, the "3PM Saturday drawing" (on Sunday at 5PM), "fun" bingo and, of course, a potluck dinner prepared by you (the best cooks we know).

RICHLAND STORYTELLING HOUR
Sunday, Sept. 26th
2-3PM
Featuring Marian Barrett Vassar

You won't want to miss storytelling hour with Marian Barrett Vassar. She has very vivid memories of her early childhood days in Richland and will share special stories about her family (the Barretts and the Musicks), friends and their antics, plus small town activities. Her father's lifetime collection of Richland newspaper clippings, photos and memoirs was instrumental in building the museum's Remembering Richland Exhibit. Her stories will capture your heart! Light refreshments will be served.
