GCHS Archival Library

The Greene County Historical Society maintains a Local History and Archival Library located in the old poor farm boiler house, behind the main museum building. The collection contains  outstanding primary information resources regarding virtually all aspects of the Greene County's economic, cultural, and social history. It also has limited information on Fayette and Washington Counties, and the nearby states of West Virginia, Ohio, Maryland and Virginia.

Due to an ongoing, large archival project, the library is not open and the material does not circulate. The museum staff is available to research inquiries on family and local history.  

Our flat fee for research is $40 which includes one hour of research, a brief report of findings, up to 10 photocopies of documents.
