Greene County Historical Museum to re-open, on Saturdays in July

After being closed all spring and early summer, out of concern for the spread of the corona virus, the Greene County Historical Museum in Jefferson is going to begin re-opening to the public – starting with Saturday mornings in July.

“We will be open Saturdays from 9 a.m. until noon on July 4, 11, 18, and 25,” Roger Aegerter, the historical society’s executive director, said this week.  “And then we’ll evaluate what additional times we can be open.”

Aegerter said for now, visitors as well as the volunteer guides at the museum will all be encouraged to observe social distancing of six feet, wear masks, and refrain from touching or handling the exhibits. There will not be organized group tours available, and the total number of people in the museum at any one time will be limited to 10.

“This may sound like a lot of restrictive regulations but we want our visitors and volunteers to stay safe and healthy,” he added.

In other corona virus-related decisions, the historical society will not be opening its two historical buildings at the Greene County Fairgrounds this summer, and its regular monthly lunches and programs will not be resumed until at least September.
