Greene Hills Farm, also known as the Greene County Historical Society Museum, is a historic home located at Franklin Township in Greene County, Pennsylvania. The house was built in 1861, as a 2 1/2-story, nine bay by four bay, brick dwelling with a gable roof in the Georgian style. It was expanded in the 1880s with a 2 1/2-story, brick addition with a gable roof. Another 2 1/2-story addition was built about 1900. It was the county home for the aged from the 1880s through 1964 when it closed its doors. It was renovated starting in 1969, to house the Greene County Historical Society museum collection and library.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.[1]
