Item of the Week – September 27, 2013
This photograph, from the GHS Archives, depicts the four women in front of the Marquee of the Lewis Theater on Court Street in Lewisburg (circa 1950s). The Lewis first opened in 1939 and has operated continuously as a theater ever since. Today, the Lewis is raising money for the necessary switch to digital projectors.

Join the Greenbrier Historical Society on October’s First Friday in Downtown Lewisburg for a haunted candlelit tour of the North House. For two nights only – Friday October 4th and Friday October 18th, 2013 from 5pm to 7pm – the historical society will open its doors for an evening of thrills, chills, and fall fun. The North House will once again be visited by a number of spirits who are yearning to tell our guests their tragic stories.  Come walk the darkened hallways, listen for unexplained footsteps, and prepare yourself for ghostly images.

Tours will begin every 30 minutes with a limited number of tickets for each tour. The admission fee will be “Pay What You Can” and will go to support the Greenbrier Historical Society and North House Museum.  If you have any questions or require more information, please call 304-645-3398 or email info@greenbrierhistorical.org.
