About the Greenback Historical Society

The Greenback Historical Society, Inc. of Greenback, Tennessee, was formed and granted a charter with the State of Tennessee in September,2006, as a non-profit corporation. In March of 2009 we received our designation as a Public Charity, 501(c)3 retroactive to September 2006.

Our goals are to preserve, exhibit, interpret, and promote the memories, artifacts, events and stories about Greenback and the surrounding communities. Two of our objectives were to aid our sister club, the Greenback Heritage Museum through volunteer docents and equipment, and to aid the Greenback Community Club/Greenback Scrapbook Committee in the collection, printing, and binding of the Greenback Heritage Scrapbook.  Volumes I through III are available at the Greenback Public Library, and at the Greenback Heritage Museum.

Since our inception our members have met four times each year to share memories, photographs, and to hear a program on historical topics and remembrances of yesterday. All meetings and educational programs are open to the public. A quarterly newsletter is sent to members and supporters through which we announce the meetings, events of interest, and news regarding the organization.

We have sponsored Civil War Trail Markers at Sherman’s Morganton Crossing and at the National Campground. We have been instrumental in replacing missing roadside historical markers, and in placing a new one at the Greenback Depot in downtown Greenback.

If you are interested in becoming a member and receiving the newsletter, please submit individual dues of $10 or family dues of $15 to Greenback Historical Society, Inc. at Post Office Box 165, Greenback, TN  37742.
