Greenville County was formed after the Revolution when Cherokee lands were absorbed and distributed to Patriot soldiers as payment for their service. Originally spelled “Greeneville,” the county is named for General Nathanael Greene, the hero of the American southern campaign during the Revolutionary War.
With mill life taking off at the turn of the century and the Great Migration of 1905, the population in Greenville grew. Mills and other forms of manufacturing settled along the Reedy River and established Greenville as an industrial hub and magnet for a growing population.
