This year, the Greenfield Historical Society’s board decided to combine the annual History Day and Ghost Walk into one event. Both will be held Oct. 5 at the society’s buildings on North Front Street.

The morning will start with the History 5K Run/Walk at 9 a.m. in front of the Grain & Hay Building. The route will take participants past many sites associated with Greenfield’s history and end where it began where awards and prizes will be given out at the Grain & Hay.
  
History Day activities will include displays in the several society buildings located on North Front Street. These include a train display in the B&O Depot, vintage clothing display in the Smith Tannery and a firetruck, Conestoga wagon and buggies in the Red Barn. 



The society recently had two of Dale Knauer’s Cabarets (1986 and 1993) transferred from VHS to DVD, and these will be showing in the Grain & Hay. Displays of Greenfield memorabilia and Greenfield’s Sesquicentennial will be in the Grain & Hay showcases. Several craft demonstrators will also be in the Grain & Hay as well.

Food available will include Chris Dodd’s smoked pork loin sandwiches and bean soup, hot dogs, drinks and dessert. 

Later, the activities will move across Jefferson Street to Travellers Rest, which will open for a display of artwork of McClain High students. The activities at the Grain & Hay will be winding down at this time.

The day will be capped off with the society’s annual Ghost Walk in the Old Burying Ground. Five actors will portray some of Greenfield’s oldest citizens at 3 p.m.
