The Greenbrier Historical Society (GHS) will exhibit Greenbrier: Then and Now starting Saturday, Aug. 22, at 10 a.m. The exhibit looks at our past so that we may understand our present. It shows how towns and communities change over time to reflect the cultural and economic forces that are placed on different geographic areas. It traces the flowering of new communities and the endurance of old. There will be many never before seen photographs and artifacts.
As part of the exhibit GHS is starting its newest project to document, through oral interviews, the experiences of our communities so that these stories and personal histories won’t be lost to time. Anyone who wishes to tell their story, or their family’s story, is welcome to stop by and record it for the Historical Society’s collection. We hope to learn about everyday life through changing, and often challenging, times.
Come for our exhibition opening on Aug. 22, to hear golden oldies, see a car show, and eat a free chocolate shake. The exhibit will be on display until Oct. 17, and is free to the public. For more information call 304-645-3398 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
