Since 1867, 46 individuals have occupied the mayor’s seat, and each one has been unique. Work is currently underway to collect photos of all of the town’s past mayors, which will adorn a wall at the Carrollton Municipal Building.

Carrollton’s first mayor was William L. Greene in 1867. A drawing of Mayor Greene will be included in a PowerPoint presentation at the first event; the image was provided by a late descendant of Greene, Gertrude (Greene) Achenbach.

The second part of the series, Mayors of Carrollton: Part II, will be presented at the annual meeting on May 19, 2024 by Custer and John Langer, president of the Greene County Historical and Genealogical Society.
