Did You Know This About Greenville?

My Greenville neighbors! Living in this town, you probably feel as if you know just about everything there is to know about our area – right? Well, I beg to differ a little. I can almost guarantee that there is probably something you don’t know about Greenville.

So, let’s test your smarts today. Did you know this about Greenville?

  1. Until 1776, Greenville was part of the Cherokee Nation’s protected lands.
  2. The first white man to settle in Greenville was Richard Pearis, and he married a Cherokee woman. He was actually given several tracts of land but because he was not a Patriot, he lost all of his possessions and land during the Revolutionary War.
  3. We were known as the “Textile Center of the World” in the early 1900’s.
  4. And in 1831, our name was CHANGED to Greenville. That’s right, we used to be Pleasantburg!
  5. And while we’re talking about our name, it wasn’t always spelled the same way either. We used to be spelled Greeneville – probably after the Revolutionary War hero Nathaniel Greene.
  6. Paris Mountain was named after Richard Pearis – but they used the French spelling so it wouldn’t be so confusing.
  7. Greenville served as a training camp center for Army recruits during World War I.
  8. And the Donaldson Center Airport served as a military base after World War II until the 1960s.
