The Greenbrier Historical Society – North House Museum & Archives in Lewisburg, West Virginia strives to bring history alive through various programs and events.

Free guided tours and research assistance are available Monday-Saturday from 10am to 4pm or by appointment.

EXPLORE the lives of Greenbrier Valley residents in our North House Museum. Built in 1820, the North House was the home of local lawyer John North and his wife Charlotte for more than a decade before becoming James Frazier’s Star Tavern and Inn. Today, the museum’s permanent displays and temporary exhibits feature items from across the Greenbrier Valley, including the training saddle of General Robert E. Lee’s horse Traveler, an 18th century covered wagon, Civil War artifacts, and furniture made by local craftsman David Surbaugh, as well as original items from the North family.

DISCOVER new stories and find family connections in our Archives and Library, the premiere collection of Greenbrier Valley history in the region.  The archives and library are home to our genealogical collections, former courthouse documents, and our marriage bond collection, as well as info on a wide variety of topics. For assistance, contact us at archives@greenbrierhistorical.org
