What’s new at the

Rifle Creek Museum

Another summer season is here at the Rifle Creek Museum. A number of exciting things have already happened and others are still in the working stages.

Around the first of the year, the boards of the Rifle Historical Society and the Rifle Creek Museum agreed to form an alliance and we became the Rifle Creek Center for Historical Preservation, DBA the Rifle Creek Museum.

In April, we set every Monday as work days and, with a good crew, we started an ongoing project of refreshing and refurbishing the museum. We started in the office with new carpet and paint, sprucing up our entry way with paint and new drapes. Then we relocated some of the displays, which gave them a fresh, new look. This is just the beginning of many nice changes. A big thanks to all who had a part in this.

We have put applications in for three different grants and have received a generous gift from the Rifle Community Foundation. We thank them while the others are still pending. These will help us to begin archiving and preserving our artifacts in the proper way.

We invite you all to come and see our new look and let us know your thoughts as to how we can improve your museum even further.
