An Introduction

Fiddler’s Green is a part of my Great-Grandfather’s 100 acre plus farm, which was before that, a part of a 1000 acre farm belonging to Mr. Butler Green.

Seven generations of our family have lived here on these hills and valleys. There were barns, a working gristmill and a store on this farm during the 19th century. We are proud to devote a portion of this property each year to helping others discover their very own connections to the time and era of the War Between the States, and all that that meant for people trying to carve out a living during that tumultuous time in the history of our country.
