The Greenbrier Historical Society and North House Museum is an attractive property built in 1820 overlooking Academy Park and downtown Lewisburg.Our Saturday morning tour was very good and the young man giving the tour was very informative.We found the historic postal carriages on the glass enclosed porch very interesting,learning about the formation of the US Postal System.Nice small gift shop.

We were in Lewisburg to see the Lost Caverns. It was a beautiful day and Lewisburg is a pretty little town so we decided to spend the afternoon there. We came across this museum, so we decided to check it out. We had a nice tour with a pleasant, knowledgeable guide. After the tour was completed we visited the gift... More

You are absolutely right. Although we try to keep a variety of books available for purchase, this particular book has seemingly fallen through the cracks and was not on our inventory.

Truthfully, the only reason we wanted to visit this house is because there was a geocache in the yard. After finding the geocache we decided to visit the house. It was one of the highlights of our trip. The tour guide was excellent and really knew his stuff. He made everything from the tilt of the floor to the etching... More

I enjoyed triple the time I expected to spend here. The museum is interesting and has many artifacts and stories but the best part is the guided tour.

My mother and I went on the free tour of the house. Our tour guide Caleb was an excellent tour guide. He knew a lot about the house and also about the Greenbrier region. He also had very interesting historical stories. Highly recommend this tour for any Lewisburg trip.

Our tour guide was knowledgeable and delightful. The house was well maintained. It has an excellent collection of rifles, wagons, and handmade linens. This would be a perfect event for a rainy day.

We toured this old mansion when it and several others were opened during the Annual Lewisburg Home and Garden tour. A visit to Lewisburg in June for this event is enjoyable, but somewhat strenuous if you want to see

We were in Lewisburg to do genealogical research. Lots of great information in the archives. Very importantly, the volunteers were knowledgeable, helpful and fun.
