Richmond Museum Association celebrates 60 years of preserving Richmond?s history!

In 1952, a dedicated group of volunteers began a local history room in Richmond?s Carnegie Library building. Two years later, in 1954, the Richmond Museum Association (RMA) was incorporated as a 501c3 nonprofit organization. Sixty years later, we are delighted to continue to carry out our mission to preserve Richmond?s history!

60 years

To celebrate the occasion, the RMA is giving away commemorative 60th anniversary pins to each and every member of our organization! The pin is a just a small token of appreciation to thank the members for their continued support for the Richmond Museum of History, the SS Red Oak Victory and the preserving Richmond?s history! Members can obtain their pin at the Richmond Museum of History, located at 400 Nevin Avenue in the City of Richmond. Not a member yet?

Help the Richmond Museum of History Renovate the Permanent Exhibit!

The Richmond Museum of History is very proud to be one of the oldest organizations dedicated to local history in West County! Although many things get better with age, museum exhibits do not always age gracefully. The permanent exhibit at the Richmond Museum of History was installed in 1980 and we are excited to announce we are fundraising to renovate it! The exhibit renovation will be completed in stages by chronology, so the first area that will be redone is the Native American section of the permanent exhibit. Richmond was inhabited by Native Americans for thousands of years before arrival of the Spanish, and that time period has been the subject of considerable research.

The permanent exhibit will be interpretive, interactive, and accessible to all in our community when it is completely finished. We intend for the exhibit to present multiple points of view, so that all people in our diverse community will feel accurately represented. Will you please consider making a small donation toward the renovation effort?
