Garst Museum.

Annie Oakley, USS Shenandoah, Lowell Thomas

Besides an outstanding display of Annie Oakley memorabilia, the Garst Museum has a room dedicated to globetrotting journalist Lowell Thomas (his birth home is on museum grounds); a room dedicated to Zachary Landsdowne, commander of the ill-fated USS Shenandoah airship (with Shenandoah memorabilia); and sections dedicated to town life and pre-statehood settlement. An important treaty was signed in Greenville between the U.S. Army (which included Anthony Wayne, William Henry Harrison and both Lewis and Clark) and the chiefs of various Native American tribes (minus Tecumseh).

One of the best small town museums in the state.

Annie Oakley Museum

I've never been there myself, but my wife and daughter went as a Girl Scout trip one time. Also, Annie is buried just south of town in a cemetery located along US Route 127.
