Posted by Linda Cottrell Liss on 2016/3/29 12:56:25 (1097 reads)

Richard I. “Rick” Greathouse joined the Roane County Historical Society in 2004 after learning that he was descended from two of Roane County's earliest settlers, Samuel Tanner and John Greathouse.

He is the current President of the Roane County Historical Society. He is also the current secretary of the Daniel Boone Chapter, WV Sons of the American Revolution in Charleston and serves in the color guard at the state/national level. He also serves as vice president for Mining Your History Foundation in Charleston, WV. Rick also serves in Revolutionary War enactments associated with Fort Randolph at Pt. Pleasant, WV.
He manages a family website named Greathouse Point and is working on a project to catalog the “first families” of Roane County through researching land deeds & early tax records.

Mr. Greathouse was nominated by the Roane County Historical Society as its 7th History Hero. The statewide recognition is sponsored by the West Virginia Division of Culture & History and honors West Virginians who have had dedicated service to their nominating organization’s programs and/or recent significant contributions to their state and local history. He and 49 other statewide honorees received a certificate of participation during the 20th Annual History Day celebration on Friday, January 29, 2016 at the Culture Center in Charleston, WV. Congratulations, Rick on receiving this prestigious honor.
We are proud of you…
