History of the Webb House
The Webb House began as a vision of the youth group to make a space especially for the teenagers of Greene County. A home sitting at the corner of Wilson and Court served for a time as the church office and classrooms. The youth began meeting there.
Once the remodeling was done at the church building the youth asked the church for a space of their own. With the help of many generous Greene County residents the Webb House was built. It is owned by the United Methodist Church, but supported by many churches, civic groups and individuals who agree that teens need a fun, safe place to spend time with friends.
