2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the RLSM!


Almost 140 years ago in 1880, Robert Louis Stevenson and his new wife, Fanny, honeymooned in Napa Valley and he wrote his book The Silverado Squatters
Almost 90 years later in 1969, Norman and Charlotte Strouse would share their love of RLS with the people of St. Helena and the world by opening the now treasured Robert Louis Stevenson Museum! 
Today, 50 years after the opening of the RLSM we are celebrating with the first ever City proclamation of Stevenson Day, here in St. Helena!
