Historical Society was Organized in 1966. The society has made steady progress in collecting, preserving, restoring, cataloging and displaying hundreds of items pertinent to Greene County's history, starting from the first white settler in 1849. Early in the society's existence, a building was purchased on the north side of the courthouse square in Jefferson. Later, a large metal building was constructed on the Greene County Fairgrounds to house a log cabin, farm machinery and farm related implements. A well preserved one room school house near this site is also maintained by the society.
