The staff are very knowledgeable and offer a wealth of information about the history of the Moosehead region and the logging industry. A small museum is on site with hundreds of items related to the history of logging in this region.

My Dad dragged all of us to the Historical Society on an overcast day. It is a small place but the woman in charge was very knowledgable. They had a box with stuff to " guess' what it was and the woman was very patient with my son. Nice information about the area. Interesting things on logging and flying.

I was thrilled when I stopped at the Historical Society building and found photographs of a now deceased relative taken at the turn of th century. The staff was incredibly knowledgeableand I enjoyed the exhibits and items on display. I highly recommend this as a stop on any travels through Greenville.
