The Greene County Historical Society is a 501(c)3, non-profit organization. Much of our funding is generated through our annual events which include Opening Day, Cruisin’ the Museum Car Show, Harvest Festival and Christmas Open House. We also hold other events and presentations throughout the year, offering fun, entertaining and educational ways to engage the community.
Opening Day is the kickoff of our open season. The “Blast from the Past” Opening Day Virtual 5K gives participants flexibility to run, jog or walk wherever and whenever they choose. We welcome guests back to the museum to see what changes have been made during our off season. Everyone is invited to enjoy self-guided tours of the museum and grounds and activities that vary from year to year.
The Cruisin’ the Museum Car Show has grown into one of our biggest events. Each year brings many registered vehicles for judging, several just for show and hundreds of spectators. Cars, trucks, motorcycles and much more fill the museum grounds as everyone enjoy oldies being played from the front porch. It’s the perfect way to spend a warm spring day!
October brings our season to a close with Harvest Festival. For over 50 years, the GCHS Museum has hosted this annual event that offers something for everyone. Civil War encampments with reenactments, colonial encampment, unique retail and food vendors, demonstrations of blacksmithing, weaving and looming, Native American culture, pottery and more are just a few of the thing’s visitors will enjoy while walking the grounds and touring the historic museum and barn. This event is an experience you won’t want to miss.
Christmas Open House welcomes guests to enjoy the historic museum building with the added warmth of the holidays. Decorated with greenery and red bows, the front porch welcomes everyone to come inside and see how Christmas might have looked here in the late 1800’s. Visits from Santa and Father Christmas delight young and old alike and a puppet show done on a stage that is modeled after the front of the museum is great fun for everyone. Live music fills the air from the front parlor as local musicians showcase their talents with various instruments and singing. This season of giving is a time we like to give back to our community and we invite all our guests help us by bringing donations for local organizations. It’s the perfect way to end the year and spread Christmas cheer!
