Welcome to the Lewisburg Historical Society website! The society was established in February 1992 when 14 citizens met for the purpose of saving the Lewisburg Train Depot after it was feared to be sold at an auction.  Since its inception in 1992, the Historical Society restored a 1918 B&O Caboose that is currently located on the backside of the society building and also renovated the H. E. Singer Blacksmith Shop. The Blacksmith Shop is open once a month with a blacksmithing demonstration. During the Fall Season to before Halloween, the society conducts mine tour wagon rides through the old Limestone mine during the operation of the Lewisburg Haunted Caves and is well known for its Kettle Corn. Over the years the society has held numerous events and fundraisers. We hold monthly meetings in the train depot building on the second Tuesday at 7:00 PM unless noted differently, we usually don't hold a monthly meeting for the month of December. We are always looking for new members!

Explore part of the 44 acres of the mine 80 feet underground and hear the narrator tell the story of the workings of this unique mining operation. Buy a bag of our delicious freshly popped Kettle Corn to take on the tour!
