Richland County Historical Museum

We are the Citizens of Richland County, North Dakota who are tired of the same old people who get together once per month to have coffee and cookies and could give a crap about what their mission really is.... to educate the Citizens about history so they are not destined to repeat it over again. The answer to 1984 is 1776. Remember this day.....

Mission: The answer to 1984 is 1776. The dictators must be thrown out and true caretakers of the history of Richland County, North Dakota, must be put in their places.

The chocolate chip cookie fundraiser went over so well that we were able to upgrade our parts runner. We will miss the old DeSoto... but I think we will adapt pretty well...

Thanks for all who participated... Looking forward to next year...

Little known about the museum is that Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt loved to come and man the front desk when he lived in North Dakota. People would often say he looked familiar and he would reply with a hearty laugh. Sometimes he would stay overnight in the employee coffee room if there were no rooms available at the local hotel. He was a great storyteller.....

Today in Rock and Roll history, the Richland County Museum becomes famous.... The RCHM is located on a road that turned out to be an exact duplicate of Abby Road. Since Abby Road was located on such a busy thoroughfare in a well-known district of London called Camden, the decision was made to take the original pictures at a less congested area.... yes, it was at the RCHM on the west side of the building that Paul walked barefoot. He had forgotten his shoes at the AmercInn.... and it was just too nice out to care... The rest is Rock and Roll history....

On the trail of Bigfoot in NW Richland County. Remember when you are on the trail, take one of the older Board of Directors with so you can easily outrun them if a predator starts chasing you. Usually only in death will the members of the Richland County Historical Museum give up their position. And you know it is good to "cull the herd" every once in awhile......

The Richland County Historical Museum Remembers.....

Today we remember Cliff Cornwall, ex-reserve army air corps officer, ex-FBI agent, whom the US army “borrowed” to hunt down spies and saboteurs. He was a skilled pilot who also had a familiarity with deep-sea diving. Cliff’s end came in Greenland, possibly falling foul of some foreign spy. Most probably a guy as he always was suspicious of women. He was never found. Maybe one day, with the help of global warming, his body may be found and returned to the United States for burial. Rest in Peace.

There is a 3 foot Obelisk on the right corner of the grounds of the Richland County Historical Society Grounds that commemorates the life of Cliff Cornwall. Son, Father, Citizen, and Fallen Hero.

Does your Museum have a fence around it's most important statue or can you get close enough to see the whites of the eyes of your local museum's statues? It is time to support your Richland County Historical Museum. And not that one run by the artifacts, themselves.....

Does your museum have fun stuff to look at with your eyes and touch with your hands? Or do you have that place in town where you don't even know if or when it is open....... It's time to make the museum great again!

Is this the car used in the 1978 robbery of the Franklin Savings and Loan and is it located in the basement of the Richland County Historical Museum? When is the last time you were in the basement of history?

There is no gum chewing at the museum for "obvious reasons". As Johnny Cash once said at the museum, "Leave your gum at home, Bill. Don't bring your gum to town."

See this tractor? I had a dream of bringing tractors, automobiles, and motorcycles to be shown at the Richland County Historical Museum. You won't see anything like it there now. Demand new board members that have a vision of what will drive people to come to the museum.

I would like to thank the citizens for voting down the mil levy increase again. The plan I originally promoted would have been to work with the Abercrombie Museum, the Lidgerwood Museum, and the Wyndmere Museum on a mil levy increase that would benefit all four Richland County Museums in a formula that gives money to all four museums in a ratio of 40% to the RCHS and 20% to each of the other three museums. Keep up the good work until the artifacts on the present RCHS get their heads out of their backsides, retire, or leave feet first.
