Greenville historical society


The Greenville Area Historical Society was organized in 1978 by a group of dedicated Greenville citizens, to preserve the rich history of our town. There are currently 250 active members. The Society maintains a museum - The Waugh House at 23 West Main Street. The Society  sponsors activities such as ethnic heritage festivals, walking tours and an oral history program focusing on longtime area residents. A tour and a talk on Greenville history is provided for school classes visiting the museum. Assistance in research on local history is available on request.
