Glenville Area Historical Society plans First Annual Historical Discovery Event
Fraser Fir Christmas tree fields can be spotted along the back roads and not so back roads all over Glenville. Farmers began growing these beautiful Fraser Fir trees when their money crop, the famous Glenville cabbage, lost favor during the 1970’s. On Saturday July 22nd the Glenville Area Historical Society launches their 1st Annual Historic Discovery Event – All About Fraser Fir Christmas Trees to be held at the Society’s Historical Museum on Highway 107 in the center of Glenville. The event is ongoing so attendees are welcome to come anytime from 11AM to 4PM.
Every town or village has its center or hub that may be several blocks of shops, businesses and government buildings or a single location. For Glenville it is the Glenville Community Development Club, known as the CDC, where everything happens. It is the place for meetings, events and gatherings of residents and visitors alike. Now the building that began life as a farmers co-op is about undergo a renewal thanks to a partnership of the Glenville Initiative (GI), CDC and David L. Wallace and Associates.
On October 2, 2015 Donnie Shuey and Mary Shuey, owners of Signal; Ridge Marina in Glenville, handed the key of their former boat rental building to the Glenville Areas Historical Society for use as the group’s historical museum.
