The fence originally surrounded the grounds of the Greenbrier County Courthouse on Court Street. The installation was part el an ongoing project of the club to beautify the grounds of the building, which was constructed in 1820 and now draws tourists each year from May to October. According to Emily Shlrey, chair- nmn of the garden club project, the Greenbrler Historical Society purchased the fence from the Lewisburg Foundation last fall for $500. The garden club hired local contractor Orville Sams to scrape and re-paint the fence at a price of $2,500, funded by the club. Mr Sams installed it in early June. Additional portions of the fence are still located behind the courthouse, and the club is working to acquire them for later restoration and installation. Mr Sams said a gate is needed for the fence and welcomed informa- tion about locating one in keep- ing with the Victorian style, along with ad'ditional fencing. The early his,ely of the fence is sketchy, but according to local historian William D. Tuckwiller, it dates from the late 1800's when it was purchased for the grounds of the courthouse. David Tuckwiller said the por- tion around the front part of the building was removed in late 1930's or early 1940's and stored near "The Barracks," a building still standing at the northeast corner of Randolph and Jefferson streets.
