Greenbush Day Celebrations Greenbush has a rich history dating back to 1869 when a young priest travelling by horseback vowed to build a church on the open prairie. Little did he know it would be the first of four churches and would bring many immigrant families together to build a school, stores and farms in the area, each family adding their own heritage to form a community devoted to keeping their forefathers dream alive.
Beginning September 1991 area residents headed by the Saint Aloysius Historical Society, began hosting an event called ‘Greenbush Day’ to celebrate the local history, raise funds to help preserve and maintain the Greenbush grounds. It is a community effort and project. Southeast Kansas Education Service Center at Greenbush also helps with this event by sponsoring many of the activities. Each year family and friends come together to socialize, enjoy a hog roast, musical entertainment, and different activities for the kids. Please mark your calendars to join us on the third Sunday of September every year. Activities begin at 11 am with the hog roast.
