Greenville is the largest city in the state of South Carolina, boasting an estimated population of 64,000 people. Greenville experiences a warm, humid, and temperate climate with hot summers. Residents enjoy a bustling downtown full of boutiques, restaurants, and other attractions.
The History of Greenville
Greenville County was founded in 1786. There is still controversy as to whether or not it was named for its appearance or after General Nathanael Greene for his service in the American Revolutionary War. The town experienced rapid development all throughout its history, becoming a hub for railroads in the 19th century and eventually earning its title as the “Textile Center of the South.”
The city, much like others at the time, profited from the post-war boom after World War II and began expanding even further. Universities, businesses, and downtown establishments started popping up in succession. Although the 1970s presented a significant drop in economic activity, Mayor Max Heller pioneered the establishment of the Hughes Main Library, the Greenville County Museum of Art, and the development of the city’s downtown area.
Modern Day Greenville
Greenville is now ranked one of the best places to live due to its relatively temperate climate, moderate population size, elegant and historical architecture, and other attractive urban amenities. The city’s crowning jewel is the downtown, attracting investors and businesses from around the country as well as an influx of tourists. Some notable attractions are the Peace Center for Performing Arts, Falls Park on the Reedy, and Cleveland Park.
