Four years ago, we moved to this area and we only knew 2 people and they lived all the way in Nampa. This wasn’t our first moving rodeo, so we knew that the best way to meet new people was by getting involved in the community. I first started helping with the Payette Farmers market and have made friends in Payette. My husband Michael started volunteering at the front desk at FRCC and when the farmers market did not resurrect, I started volunteering at FRCC as well.

Now fast forward to today and we have both fallen in love with the FRCC Mission, to unite the community through the celebration of art, culture, education, and history for a more united and healthy community. Michael volunteers at least 4 hours each week greeting museum entrants and has taken on special projects such as leading tours in the Japanese Garden and doing a joint art type project for an easter themed picture board. I was asked to bring my office management and non-profit finance skills and was offered a position! I didn’t think I wanted to go back to work but I am enjoying stretching my mind and all of the client and staff interaction.

Here at Four Rivers Cultural Center and Museum we are guided by the following beliefs:

We believe in the transforming power of art, culture, education, and history to instill appreciation and amazement, to inspire and teach, to shed light on who we are and who we aspire to be. Through them, we create vibrant people for a vibrant community.

We believe every person should have barrier-free access to explore moments of creativity, growth, connection, marvel, passion, empowerment, traditions, and community, no matter who they are —it’s why we host year-round programming at the lowest cost possible or free.

We believe FRCC is a place for everyone. Every decision we make is guided by that principle, and we continue to learn, grow, and evolve to make sure it is true for all people. FRCC was built by the community for the community. We believe in the fundamental value of collaborating with our community. Together with our partners, members, donors, and volunteers, we can produce programs and experiences that are relevant and valuable for our diverse community.

We believe in equipping all people who make up our community – now and in the future – with a lifetime of enriching experiences to live their best story, because when we as individuals consistently better ourselves and appreciate one another, we brighten our futures and community.

You can build tomorrow’s FRCC and help kick off the next 25 years with a single or sustaining birthday gift. Your donation directly supports our 25th anniversary celebration to help sustain FRCC’s building. The best part? The Roundhouse Foundation is matching up to 25K! That means, as our community works together, FRCC will celebrate its special anniversary with 50K!




Four Rivers Cultural Center is a mighty rural 501(c)3 nonprofit located in the Western Treasure Valley. We are an 85,000 sq foot facility that is home to a performing arts theater, museum, Japanese garden, rotating art gallery, plus, a conference and rental facility. 

Our mission and belief are that every individual should have access to the transforming power of art, culture, education, and history, because of that belief, we provide program access at the lowest cost or free. We bring people to learn from one another and challenge the idea that our differences separate us. We do this through four tenets of our programming; Inspire, Preserve, Serve and Inform. 



FRCC's facility is an asset to our rural community which houses many civic, social, corporate, and nonprofit events. When our community chooses FRCC as their venue rental, those proceeds support all of the work we do as a nonprofit organization. Your support of our 25th anniversary ensures this facility is healthy and available for future generations to meet and celebrate.

On May 31, 1997, FRCC officially opened the museum, gallery, gift shop, and lobby, with September 1997 seeing the official opening of the Convention Center and Performing Arts Theatre.

A quick look at FRCC’s history tells the story of three local men, who in 1987, created the initial idea for the Center: FRCC was destined to memorialize the men and women of Japanese American ancestry who served during WWII even when their country forcefully placed all Japanese people into internment/work camps (one of those camps was located as close as Nyssa, OR).

After the war, a significant amount of these men and women settled in the western treasure valley; they felt it to be a safe haven where they were accepted by the community.

Knowing the many stories and rich contributions of their fellowman, community members supported the idea of a Japanese Cultural Center to honor them. The local Japanese Americans felt honored by the idea, but proposed their story be told as part of the total history of the western treasure valley.

They wished for a place to welcome and celebrate the many stories and cultural groups who contributed to the formation of the area.

Thus, a place for you; for everyone was created with the purpose of celebrating culture and diversity for a more vibrant community. That place is the Four Rivers Cultural Center and Museum.
