Our History :

The Greenwood Museum was established in 1967 by James West Durst along with a group of highly dedicated community volunteers. The Museum opened to the public in 1970 with one room of displays in the old armory building on Phoenix Street. Over the next several years, through hard work and community interest, the Museum grew to encompass the entire armory building. 

By the early 1980's, The Museum had outgrown its modest beginnings and in 1982 moved to the current facility at 106 Main Street. Since that time, The Museum has continued to serve the community and been a community hub for the arts and culture. It was twice named the South Carolina tourist attraction of the year in its category. 

In 2007, the Museum closed to the public for the largest renovation and exhibit project undertaken since the 1982 move. During the following 10 months, the Museum building underwent nearly 1.3 million dollars in renovations and exhibit upgrades.
