In January 2010 the Latvian Roerich Society unveiled a memorial plank on building in Riga (Elizabetes Str. 21A) where during the years 1933-1940 the Museum of Nicholas Roerich paintings and Latvian Roerich Society was located.
The Society president of that time Feliks Lukins (1875-1934) found these premises after a long searching. In the newspapers of that time we can read many good comments about Roerich Museum and its beautiful premises.
The most time during the Society was located in this building the president of it was Latvian writer and poet Rihards Rudzitis, because of the abrupt death of F.Lukins in 1934.

The inscribed text is:
During the years 1933 - 1940 the Nicholas Roerich Museum and the Latvian Roerich society, whose president from 1934 on was Latvian poet and philosopher Rihards Rudzitis, was located on the fifth floor of this building.
