The Sullivan County Historical Society and Museum
The Sullivan County Museum will be opening for volunteer staff soon. The volunteers will start to work on all the research requests that have been sent to the Sullivan County Historical Society since the museum was closed.
The pandemic hasn’t stopped folks from sending items related to the history of Sullivan County. The museum recently received a donation especially related to Hurleyville…a GI Joe Action Figure of Congressional Medal of Honor recipient, Francis S. Currey. Mr. Currey, a Sullivan County native, was a former resident of Hurleyville.
