The authors—members of the Historical Register Committee of the Greene County Historical Society—drew on their unparalleled access to published and unpublished sources, as well as first-hand testimony and oral family history, to create this detailed account of the personal history of Greene County, one anecdote at a time—the people, events, sites, ideas, experiences and accomplishments that have shaped the region’s history since the early 1600s. Includes an introduction to the architecture of the region, a foreword by the late Raymond Beecher, Greene County Historian, a genealogical index, and a complete bibliography of sources.
