Create an itinerary including Greenbrier Historical Society and North House Museum
The North House, as a museum, exists to commemorate and interpret life in Greenbrier County in the early 1800s. It accomplishes this purpose by collecting, preserving, exhibiting and interpreting items, which belonged to, or were associated with, Greenbrier County, as well as other period items, which are necessary to present a complete picture to the visitor. It also accomplishes this purpose by encouraging research and publications, which are appropriate to county history. Linked to this primary goal of interpreting a historical period at a particular point in time is the secondary goal of fostering interest in, knowledge of and understanding of the history, culture, arts, architecture, industry and lifestyle of Lewisburg and Greenbrier County prior to the American Civil War, especially as represented by the material culture of the community.

  • The staff was very friendly. I enjoyed the tour. Very informative. I am glad I went.
  • We paid for the very nice tour. A small house, but with amazing history. The furniture is amazing. And if you are into quilts, hopefully they will have one of the 5 oldest quilts in the country out.
