Greenbrier Historical Society to host lectures

The Greenbrier Historical Society will host its Spring Lecture Series starting April 25. Designed as a series of how-to workshops, these lectures will be led by GHS volunteers and staff. All the lectures will begin at 7 p.m.

In the first lecture, archivist Jim Talbert will lead a discussion about using the Greenbrier Historical Society’s archives for genealogical and historical research, focusing on what new resources can be found in the collection.

Museum Coordinator Toni Ogden will talk May 2 about “How to Care for Your Artifacts and Antiques.” She will give advice about the dos and don’ts of caring for your textiles, furniture, glass/ ceramics, etc.

At the final lecture May 9, AmeriCorps member Kyle Mills will discuss “How to Care for Your Documents and Photographs.” With the popularity of scrapbooking, archival quality materials are easier than ever to find. Learn about the best way to store and care for your documents and photographs, see examples of what not to do and find out what materials to use for your projects.

All the lectures will be at the North House, 301 W. Washington St., Lewisburg. There is a requested donation of $5 per lecture or $12 for all three. Seating is limited, so reserve your spot in advance by calling 304-645-3398.

GHS is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday. E-mail info@greenbrierhistorical.org or visit its Facebook page for more information.
