The Greene County Historical Society is located at the site of the Former Greene County Home. Opening in 1862, and operating for over a century, our building was the site of many tragic occurrences and as many of our Staff and Volunteers will attest plays host to a wide range of paranormal activity.
Though our facility was designed to house those who were poor and destitute, in practice it became an asylum very much like many of the State Hospitals in the Region, but on a smaller scale. The early years of our buildings history proved to be, at times, very violent. Inmates were chained to walls in the basement and overcrowding was common place, leading to local and national criticism of the horrific living conditions.
Many of our Staff and Guests report unexplained footsteps, sounds, smells and many have even witnessed full bodied apparitions. Many of the troubled souls who once lived at the Former County Home still walk the halls and make their presence known.
