Bella Vista Historical Museum Proposed Addition

Planning and fundraising for the proposed museum addition are underway!  This rendering shows the current museum expanding north from the present building, and enclosing the Settlers Cabin. 


The objectives of the expansion project are:

  • To provide additional exhibit space to display more of the collection

  • To provide long-term protection to the Settlers Cabin and to the artifacts contained within

  • To provide additional climate controlled archival space for the Museum's large amount of paper records

  • To provide a space for functions that will allow the Museum to continue to function when the time arrives to replace the 1980's modular section of the Museum

Fundraising events, methods and opportunities will be made available soon!
