Another Great Bella Vista Item Has Been Added To The Gift Shop!

We now have mousepads available for sale in our museum gift shop. The picture on them is a print of the painting called Bella Vista Revisited, created by artist Mary Ann Jones of scenes in Bella Vista. She was commissioned by the Village Art Club to do this work in 1990 as a commemoration of the 25th anniversary of the 1965 founding of Bella Vista Village. Cost is $10/each. All proceeds go toward operating costs of the museum.

MORE Elephants Have Arrived!

We have gained access to a large private elephant collection, some of which is now available for purchase in our gift shop.  All elephant collectors should come take a look!
