The Greene County Archives and Records Center was opened in 1987 by Del Bishop-a former Federal archivist-and then county clerk, Dennis Hobbs. They envisioned a central repository where county records would be maintained for county officials and the general public. Besides having an official function the Archives was to serve as a county and regional research center.
Formed in 1833, Greene County comprised most of southwest Missouri. Early tax, deed and court records often contain information about people who are mainly associated with other counties in this area. The Archives has probate files and wills, coroner’s inquests, county clerk records which include county school, tax, road books, maps, stray animal reports, justice of the peace cases and other early county records.
