Did you know that the Greenbrier Valley was a strategic military location during the Civil War? Or that Greenbrier County was a major supplier of Salt Peter which is used in the manufacture of gunpowder? In honor of the Sesquicentennial, the Greenbrier Historical Society created a display discussing the Civil War in Greenbrier County, featuring a sabre used at the Battle of Lewisburg, a chair from a civil war encampment, and personal items from local men who fought for the Confederate army.

We invite everyone to visit the Greenbrier Historical Society’s North House Museum, located at 301 W. Washington Street, Monday – Saturday from 10am to 4pm. For more information, contact 304.645.3398 or info@greenbrierhistorical.org.
