Welcome to the Greene County Historical Society's webpage! Based in Springfield, Missouri, the Society was established in 1954 to foster and maintain an interest in the history of Springfield and Greene County. Today the Society meets this goal through programs, publications, projects, and other outreach activities.

The Society's webpage is designed to give visitors more information about the Society's work. It also serves as a tool for finding other websites with useful information about this region's history and culture.

Unfortunately, the Society's volunteers cannot help with reference questions. We suggest you visit our webpage on Local Libraries and Archives to find help with your research needs.

What's New

  • Attention undergraduate and graduate students! The GCHS now offers a fellowship program to help cover expenses related to research projects on the history, development, and/or care of the Missouri Ozarks. Complete details are available here.
  • Plans are underway for the Society's Spring lunch meeting at the Tower Club. The date will be Saturday, April 30, 2016. We are pleased to have Richard Crabtree as our guest speaker. His talk From the Poor Farm to the Country Club: The History of the Rountree Area should be of great interest to our audience. More details will be posted as they become available.
  • Now's the time to join the Greene County Historical Society! The 2016 membership form is available online. Membership dues for 2016 are only $5.00 per household. Please take this opportunity to join us in preserving our region's unique history.
  • At the fall 2014 meeting of the Society, the membership approved updates to the bylaws. Those are now online in PDF format.
