about Greenville

Greenville is a city located in Greenville County, South Carolina. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 56,002. It is the county seat of Greenville County.

For its size, Greenville has an atypically large number of activities. The Peace Center in downtown Greenville hosts national broadway shows that usually only come to cities several times larger. There are four independent theatres which put on several theatrical presentations a year. Additionally, the construction of the BI-LO Center ( has increased the number of major artists including Greenville on their tours.

Greenville is not a "college town" per se, but the students of both Furman University (in Greenville) and nearby Clemson University enjoy Greenville's downtown area for weekend entertainment. The streets of downtown are filled with people every weekend visiting the restauraunts, small shops, and bars. Greenville is also home to Bob Jones University.

In the mid-1990s, BMW built a large manufacturing plant in Greer, SC, just outside of Greenville's city limits. This plant has been a major boom to the area and can be attributed with the amazing growth rate the city has experienced.

Greer is home to Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport, which serves Greenville and Spartanburg, South Carolina.

Also of note is the city's proximity to other interesting locations.

Greenville geography

Greenville is located at 34°50'40" North, 82°23'8" West (34.844313, -82.385428).

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 67.7 km² (26.1 mi²). 67.5 km² (26.1 mi²) of it is land and 0.2 km² (0.1 mi²) of it is water. The total area is 0.23% water.

Greenville history

The area was part of the Cherokee nation's protected grounds after the treaty of 1763 ending the French & Indian War. No white man was allowed to enter, though some families already had settled just within the boundary, and white traders regularly crossed the area. The first white man to settle permanently in the area was Richard Pearis, who settled at the falls of the Reedy River sometime after 1770. Paris Mountain, the mountain overlooking the city, is named for him.

During the Revolution, the Cherokee (and, incidentally, Pearis) sided with the British. After a campaign in 1776, the Cherokee agreed to the Treaty of DeWitt's Corner ceding territory that includes present-day Greenville County to South Carolina.

Greenville County was created in 1786, but was called Greenville District from 1800 until 1868. The area is named for General Nathaniel Greene, who led Revolutionary troops in the Carolinas.
