Description

On October 10, 1969 a group of community-prided people formed the Greece Historical Society with a dedicated goal: “To preserve the past for the future.” In 1989 a restored 1870s farm house was opened as the Greece Museum and in 1995 the Newcomb Heritage Hall was added to feature exhibits of local history. Many adults, schoolchildren and families as well as our members appreciate the history on display.

Bridge the years by stepping into our new museum wing and wander through our gallery of historical exhibits. Take a look at the town’s first fire wagon, imagine our forbearers harvesting ice from a lakeside pond, contemplate transportation before the automobile or study the Native American encampment on Long Pond. These exhibits and others beckon you to visit and learn of our unique history.

Currently the web site for the Goshen INDIANA museum is being developed.

THANK YOU 2021 SPONSORS!

We are a design and fabrication shop that encourages play in museums, organizations and brands so they may spread the roots of their mission. Play is a powerful tool because it tests assumptions, makes connections and establishes a positive emotional memory to concepts. Incorporating play (interactives) in your project can actually boost diversity, loyalty and engagement which will ultimately strengthen your mission.
