• Greenville is known as the “Camellia City” but we are also known as a small southern town with a rich history.  Greenville’s original name was Butlerville.  After becoming the County Seat in 1822, its name was changed to Greenville in remembrance of the former locale in South Carolina of which many of the original settlers were from. Currently, the population stands at around 8,100.  The economy of Greenville has substantially improved in the last few years due to the opening of the Cambrian Ridge Golf Course on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail and the related growth in tourism.  Greenville has seen an increased number of hotels and restaurants as well, at Exit 130 on Interstate-65. Continued growth for Greenville looks bright with Hyundai Motor Manufacturing and Montgomery, our state capitol only 30 to 40 minutes to the north.  More and More people are seeing the benefits of small town living with big city opportunities just minutes away.  (Read More)

    Greenville is a town full of talented people. One of the pleasures of living in Greenville is the chance to enjoy a show at the Ritz Theatre.  The Ritz Theatre is home to the Greenville Art Councils which brings excellent stage productions to the city throughout the year as well as their own production by local talent each spring.  From the opening of the Ritz Theatre in 1935, until today, it continues to bring lots of enjoyment and our community together.

    The Greenville Area Chamber of Commerce and the City of Greenville sponsor numerous events during the year; including its annual Fourth of July spectacular Celebrate America, the annual downtown Christmas Parade, Trick or Treat on Commerce and Camellia City Fest arts and crafts festival in the spring. Again, our community thrives on activities and opportunities for its citizens a better quality of life.

    The “Camellia City,” a wonderful place to call home
