Wonderful museum full of people like Lowell Thomas, Annie Oakley, local Indians and so much more. Depicting Greenville Ohio and Darke county in days gone by. How they lived in the 1700's, local hero's of each American War. Plan to come for hours!!

I originally went to the museum to see the Annie Oakley exhibit. I had no idea this museum was so large and would take about 2 hrs to see everything. The main entrance is where you pay and sign in. She told us our way around (I didn't remember) and gave us a map. There were rooms and rooms of... More

My wife and I like museums, and we've been to several of these smaller regional history museums over the years. This, I think, is the best so far. The museum itself is sited in the mansion once owned by the Garst family, donated by their last surviving daughter around 40 years ago to the Greenville history association, and since expanded...

Had an excellent time exploring the museum. Took us longer than I thought so we got our money worth. That I was excited about. My girls enjoyed the history of the city and learning about Annie Oakley. Shame they didn't know about her but now they do.

I took a group of seniors there for a guided tour. Beautiful museum. Very knowledgable tour guides. I was very impressed, it was not just one person doing the tour, they have people who specialize in certain areas of the museum speaking about what they are passionate about. We had Montage Cafe cater lunch there and ate in the community... More

Of course, it helps to have a lot of local history - fortunately, Greenville has many important historical events and people to draw on. The logical starting points for Greenville history and the museum's collection are the Native Americans who first populated the area and their interactions with the early United States, culminating in the Treaty of Greenville.

It is more that just a museum. It is a learning experience for everyone of all ages. It has a special program in the summer at the end of July called the Gathering. It is for everyone. Just to wonder around the grounds and seeing old reinactments and story time for children at the Indian Tribal house. Or a great... More
