"a walk through historic wayne county"

 

 

The Wayne County Historical Society invited county municipal historical societies to participate in a creating a new exhibit in 2012 entitled “A Walk Through Historic Wayne County”.  Greene-Dreher Historical Society members developed "A Tour of Dreher Township" featuring significant and historic locations in the township and presenting them through words, photographs and artifacts from our collections.  Using an 8 foot by 4 foot board we have featured Carlton Drake Park and Riparian Path, history of the German Settlement in Newfoundland, Greene-Dreher-Sterling Fair, our hall which is on the National Register of Historic Places, the French Manor and the 1955 flood.   Several other historical societies in Wayne County also feature points of interest in their respective municipalities. The exhibit can be viewed Wednesdays through Saturdays from 10 AM to 4 PM through 2012 and Sundays, noon to 4 PM, Memorial Day through Columbus Day.

Each year, GDHS sponsors Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm which presents a program for 3rd grade students on gardening and food preparation in the 19th century.  To compliment this program, GDHS prepared "Farming = Good Food", an exhibit in the school lobby which displays artifacts from our collections dealing with farming and food preservation.
