The Historical Society engages people of all ages through museum exhibitions that tell the story of our past. Current exhibits at Peggy Bancroft Hall & Museum feature general stores; rural churches and schools; fraternal organizations, and domestic arts, such as quilting and spinning wool. Special exhibits highlight significant events in local history. For example, to commemorate the centennial of World War I in 2017-18, a special display honors the veterans from Greene and Dreher who served during the First World War.
Every object on display has its own story to tell, and together they help us understand the social and economic development of our community and its role on the national stage. In addition to the museum, a small barn on the grounds houses farm equipment from the 1800s and early 1900s. The original root cellar on the property has been restored, and a replica ice house displays vintage ice harvesting tools.
Peggy Bancroft Hall and Museum is open to the public during scheduled events, Saturdays through August from 11:00 AM to 2 PM, and by appointment. For information, please check the Events calendar on our website.
