Our Present Endeavor

The Greene County Museum and Historical Society is currently highlighting  special exhibits featuring little known people who have contributed greatly to the rich heritage of our historical county. 

Recently we have embarked on a venture of publishing photo books to sell replacing the annual calendar.  The first publication 2023 is entitled Transportation in Greene County circa 1900-1920.

As members of the Mississippi Museum Association we are endeavoring to make improvements, network with other museums and inform the community with published monthly articles. 

As an working volunteer organization, we are actively recruiting volunteers.  Currently hours of operation for the museum are Monday 9-2 and Thursday 9-2.  Our goal is to increase hours and days open to the public.
