Out of the Clock Tower

Hello and welcome to the Greene County Archives' blog, "Out of the Clock Tower".  Please join us as we share information on archival issues, news, special events, and highlights from our collection.

Before the archives program began in Greene County in 1996, permanent records were stored in every conceivable space, in basements, garages, and closets. Usually they were in boxes of various shapes and sizes, although seldom adequately labeled, but occasionally they were just in loose piles of books and papers. Most notable were the old records stuffed into the clock tower of the County Courthouse, where they shared their home with pigeon droppings.

Now, there is a clean, environmentally controlled, well appointed location for the county archives, where our historical records are housed in standard sized boxes on steel shelves. We have taken note of their journey in the name for our blog.

As we kick off Archives Month, we'd like to share our next Greene County VIP - Colonel Charles Young. We have graced our entryway, exhibit board with images from Colonel Young's estate and various photos that chronicle his life (See Fig. 1) Back in 2018, Melissa wrote a great blog post about Colonel Charles Young. We would like to re-share the post in honor of our bi-monthly VIP.
