History Day 2008

The Greenfield Historical Society hosted History Day on October 4th. It was a day of various activities at the buildings at the east end of town. Special exhibits were featured as well as craftspeople demonstrating their skills. There was even an "attic sale" for the community yard sale. And of course there was plenty of food.

We wish to give a special thank you to everyone who helped make this event successful.
