122 S Cherry St
Greenville is privileged to be the home of the Muhlenberg County Public Library’s Thistle Cottage, formerly known as the Duncan Center Museum & Art Gallery. The historic 1912 home was built by William Graham Duncan, Owner of the Duncan Coal Company, for a mere $10,000. It is a beauty to behold, with its Spanish mission style design and red tiled roof. Great detail was given to every aspect of the home, which today is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The home was donated to the city of Greenville in 1986 by Hamilton R. Duncan, Sr. and it officially became the Duncan Center Museum and Art Gallery in 1989. The Duncan House then became Muhlenberg County’s first historical museum and art gallery. In late 2013, the Duncan home was gifted to the Muhlenberg County Public Library by the City of Greenville.
