MUSEUM HISTORY
The museum opened its doors for the first time during the bass Derby in October, 1975.  The Rio Vista Museum came about as a result of the country’s 1976 Bicentennial.  People of the surrounding area contributed historical artifacts and the community has incorporated its own unique history into the museum.  Volunteers make it possible to view the museum.
