The GCHS is always engaged in projects to restore and promote the interesting and unique history of Greene County Pennsylvania.
Currently we are engaged in the continued restoration and rehabilitation of our Historic 52 room structure that once served as the County Home or Almshouse. Over the course of the last several years, we’ve been fortunate enough to rehab half of the rooms in our building, including our Main Exhibit Hall and General Store. Over the course of the next several years we would like to continue restoring rooms and repair plaster work and repaint in historically appropriate colors.
The Greene County Historical Society is also home to the Waynesburg and Washington Railroad, we are proud to announce that we have completed the Building that Houses the 1916 Locomotive Number 4, and restoration on Coach Number 6 is ongoing. It is our hopes over the next few years to completely restore the coach to it’s former glory and showcase what it would have been like to have traveled between Waynesburg and Washington on the W&W Railroad around the turn of the Century.
