Greene County Legacy Association is here to protect, enhance and support projects that are about Greene County History. The main projects that they have worked on are the Rain Day Boys and the WW I memorial.
The Rain Day Boys are 18 Greene County soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice during WW I. On July 28-29, 1918 the Rain Day Boys were in the French countryside near Germany. They went in to relieve a French regiment in German Territory. During the early hours of the morning was when the assault started and they were met with the Germans. Only a couple hours had passed when 17 of the boys were dead or wounded. The Rain Day Boys are remembered yearly at the Rain Day Festival that happens in Greene County.
The WW I memorial is located near the Greene County Historical Museum and behind the Greene County tennis courts. This memorial honors the 58 Greene County soldiers who lost their life during WW I.
These two projects tell the stories of Greene County. To learn more about both projects visit raindayboys.com for more information.

The Paul R. Stewart Museum is located in the lower level of the historic Miller Hall. The museum has been around for over 100 years. It started when President A.B. Miller asked his colleagues to send different artifacts to him.
The museum is named after the first curator, Paul R. Stewart, class of 1909. He continued to be active with the museum through his presidency at the university.
For 57 years James D. “Fuzzy” Randolph, class of 1956, helped with the museum. Fuzzy, a household name around the university, created the first lamplighter choir.
