Thanks for celebrating and sharing our history
Since its founding in 1967, the people of our community have supported the Flat River Historical Society and Museum by donating funds and artifacts, supplying materials and workmanship for projects, attending events and bringing their family and friends to discover our local history, past and present. Our future success depends on your continuing support.
"Bridging the Generations" Capital Campaign
In 2018-2019, with a matching grant challenge from the Greenville Area Community Foundation, we embarked on a capital campaign. The generous support from businesses and individuals in our area helped us surpass our goal to enhance our property and exhibits, both inside and out, so our museum can be a place where people enjoy history as they see how our community began and became what it is today.
