Disseminating information through interpretive exhibits, presentations, and publications. Preserving and encouraging others to preserve buildings, monuments and sites of historical value. Cooperating with other historical societies and organizations having purposes in keeping with those of this Society. Vision and foresight were the foundation for the formation of Historic New Richmond, Inc. The organization was formed in May 1972 to preserve and incorporated in June 1972 to preserve and share the early heritage in the area. The first general meeting was held Friday evening, May 19, 1972. Tom Greene, an artist then living in the New Richmond area, had the vision to recognize New Richmond's valuable steamboat era, history, and some of the remaining old buildings from that era. Tom Greene and Bill Corwin, whose interest Tom had enlisted, proposed to form a historic organization, buy the house at 125 George St., and establish a museum there. This house was one of several in town that typified the excellent old homes reminiscent of the National Register of Historic Places.
