GHS Program Archives

Over the past few years, the Greece Historical Society has coordinated the presentation of an extensive series of programs at our museum on Sunday afternoons. Several of these programs along with a few conducted at the Charlotte Public Library were recorded. During this time of social distancing, we are providing some of these recordings via the links below. More will be added as time permits. Presentation dates are noted in parenthesis following the program title.

After March 10, 2020 our programs have been presented via Zoom. Several of these programs were recorded and added to this list.

Please take time to watch some of these enlightening programs. As always, feel free to contact us if you would like to discuss any of these materials.
