Sports photography in history, the present & future

February 10 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

The Greene County Iowa Historical Society’s 2019 programming will begin with a special Sunday afternoon 2 p.m. program on sports photography at our museum in Jefferson.

Two of the presenters will be the excellent local sports photographers — Jeff Storjohann of the Carroll Daily Times Herald and Brandon Hurley of the Jefferson Herald.  There may be others joining the panel, too.

They will talk about how the change in camera equipment and processing has changed sports photography through the decades, and where it may be headed in the future.  We will have cameras on display from the museum’s collection, too.

The photographers will also be showing some of their own best sports work, too.

Admission is free, and the refreshments will be, too.

How many courthouse structures have been built on the site of the current Greene County Courthouse?



There have been three courthouses built where the Greene County Courthouse stands today.  Ground was broken on the current courthouse in November of 1915, the cornerstone was set in May 1916 and the new building was dedicated in October of 1917. The centennial celebration of the courthouse is already underway, with events being planned by the “Courthouse 100” committee, with support from the Greene County Historical Society.  You can learn more about the courthouse history and the celebration plans on the Facebook page “Courthouse 100: Greene County, Iowa.”
