Greene County Historical Society

 
 
The Greene County Historical Society, a nonprofit organization, was established in 1960.  The purpose of this society is to preserve our history and historical properties in Greene County.  

There are over forty residences and seven public buildings from the antebellum period and many others from the Victoria era in Eutaw.  Each year the Society hosts a Tour of Homes in October.  This tour features at least four historic homes and several historic churches.

Greene County Historical Society Headquarters:

This raised Creole cottage was finished in time for Vaughn, a tailor, to present it to his new bride.  Margaret R. Steele.  The house consists of three rooms, a connecting center hall and porches. 

The Eutaw Presbyterian Church acquired the house in 1981, and gave the house to the Historical Society.  It was then moved to its current location and restored to its 1840 appearance for use as the Greene County Historical Society Headquarters.
