Welcome to the Greene County Historical Society

The Greene County Historical Society Museum continues to be a self-supporting organization that has served as the caretaker of local written and physical histories since 1925. We maintain a historic 52-room museum at the former Greene Hills Poor Farm, as well as a restored cabin, an agricultural barn, a print house and a railroad house on 17 acres of land. 


The Greene County Historical Society represents every citizen of Greene County and its surrounding areas. Our responsibility is to preserve the wonderful stories of our forefathers and maintain the artifacts of our shared history to educate generations to come. Keeping up with this philosophy, we have a variety of historical and cultural events that celebrate the common culture and heritage of our communities throughout the summer and autumn that are open to all.
