Truly a Multi-Purpose Building

In its "hay day", the Greenfield Grain and Hay was a very busy place supporting the agricultural and home needs of the Greenfield area. One could find paint, nails, fencing, stoves, and numerous items for sale. It served the community from 1910. In 1985 it became Highland Lumber and was purdchased by the Greenfield Historical Society in 2003.

Today, as then, the G&H serves as venue for numerous historical society functions. It houses and displays many antique items and is the archive for each graduating class' yearbook and other memoriabilia. During the months of January-March, the historical society serves "country dinners" the first Sunday of each month.

History Day is also a popular event held at the complex each fall. Folks demonstrate various crafts including chair caning, painting, carving. Many people have a "flea market" offering books, antiques, and other goodies for sale. The historical society also has the items displayed that are stored at the complex.


The Greenfield Grain and Hay Complex

This main building and surrounding outbuildings once played a major role in providing farm and hardware products to area residents. The Grain and Hay complex is currently used to display a Conestoga wagon, the Ahrens Fox fire truck, agricultural equipment, vehicles from the Patterson Buggy enterprise, and sleigh. It also houses a newspaper/school research area, agricultural items and a meeting room. The adjoining "barnyard" is the site of summer events as well.
