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.
