Located at 215 N. Franklin Street, the historic site of founder John Green’s cabin, the Flat River Historical Museum hosts many fine artifacts that give a real view of John Green and Greenville area’s past. Household, family, lumbering items, and industrial products are just a few of the items on display. Classic movies can be viewed in a 30-seat replica of the Silver Theater. The museum houses 12 period rooms, portraying lifestyles of early settlers. A one-room schoolhouse, a barber shop, a country store and telegraph office are just a few examples. On the grounds you can find a stone mill wheel and an 800-pound bell.

Appointments for tours, meetings, and conducting genealogical and historical research at the museum archive may be arranged by calling the museum.
