Photo Scrapbook

The Society has a wealth of photos depicting life in Greenfield and we share a few in our virtual scrapbook. This collection will change periodically and we hope you will take the time to comment on any of the photos if you know something about it or perhaps you can identify any of the people who may be shown. Thanks and enjoy the photos.
