COME EXPLORE RIO RICO
The Museum Committee is thrilled to announce the addition of a new exhibit that is shifting history in unimaginable ways. Renowned independent archeologist, Dr. Deni Seymour has located in our Rio Rico area evidence of Francisco Vasquez de Coronado’s presence here as early as 1539. This electrifying discovery is being verified daily as dedicated volunteers, many from our own historical society, are unearthing artifacts proving this historical presence virtually in our own “back yard”. Our added Az Coronado Project Exhibit will provide fascinating details and photos. We are delighted to be an integral part of this history-altering research and discovery. Major history changing discoveries rarely happen and we are excited to have it happening in our Rio Rico area and lifetime."
