About Us

Explore the lives of Greenbrier Valley residents at the North House Museum.  Built in 1820, the North House was the home of local lawyer John North and his wife Charlotte for more than a decade before becoming James Frazier’s Star Tavern and Inn.  At the turn of the 20th century, the North House became the home of Dr. Robert Telford, President of the Greenbrier College for Women.  The Greenbrier Historical Society has operated within the North House since 1976 and has owned the building since 1994.

Today, the museum’s permanent displays and temporary exhibits feature items from across the Greenbrier Valley, including the training saddle of General Robert E. Lee’s horse, Traveller, an 18th century covered wagon, Civil War artifacts, the Doris Caldwell dioramas, and original items from the North family.  From early settlements to the Civil War and beyond, the lives of everyday Americans can be experienced at the North House Museum.
