News

The museum is now open on Saturdays and Sundays during our normal hours of 1-5 pm, but starting July 2nd the museum will be open on Fridays as well. We hope that you will join us.  We are no longer requiring a mask but if you prefer to wear one on your visit, that is acceptable. As always, admission is free.

The Bella Vista Historical Society announces the publication of a new pictorial history book, Bella Vista/Images of America, co-authored by Xyta Lucas and Dale Phillips, with photographic assistance by Jack Kellogg. The book includes photos dating from the late 1800’s through 2020 and is available now in the museum gift shop, from the publisher Arcadia Publishing, or on Amazon, and from Barnes & Noble in Rogers.  The authors are donating all profits and royalties to the museum.

The museum's temporary exhibit is about the 45th anniversary of the Bella Vista Historical Society, formed in November, 1976. It also includes information on the new history book.

The museum is currently looking for volunteers, either for a once-a-month shift as a docent or as an occasional volunteer for a special event. If you are interested in learning more (no pressure, no obligation), call Jill Werner at 479-721-3122 or email her at jrwerner@cox.net. Don't get alarmed if you hear her jump up and down with excitement when she gets your phone call, however.
