7PM – 8:30PM
We’ve been sharing the history of Richfield’s famous Bartholomew House in a discussion series that we have called, “This Old (Bartholomew) House.” Now in the third installment, we will look at how Riley Bartholomew became an integral part of the Richfield community. Using the house as a focal point, John Bjostad will walk you through Richfield’s early settlement.

Part IV will occur on March 14, 2017 and will tell the story of how the History Center came into being.
Back in 2006 we worked with the Best Buy Foundation to create a video of Richfield’s history. We ended up creating an award-winning DVD called Richfield Home that we sold in our gift shop. Well, long story short, the laptop that contained our master copy of the video was stolen and the video went “out of print” for several years. We recently recovered files from a back up drive and lo and behold we discovered the lost video! We’ve burned some new DVDs and they are once again available for purchase if you want to have your own copy. In the meantime, we’ve posted the movie to our Videos page and to our YouTube channel. The preview is below. Enjoy!
