Modern-day Greenville lies atop land initially forbidden to colonists as it was Cherokee hunting land. In 1777 the Treaty of Dewitt’s Corner and agreement between the Cherokee Nation and American colonists ceded the territory to South Carolina. The County was established in 1786, and locals say the area was named for General Nathanael Greene in honor of his service in the American Revolutionary War. Greene was known as one of George Washingtons’ most gifted and dependable Generals and brought American victory in the Battles of Guilford Court House, Hobkirk’s Hill, and Eutaw Springs.
This map pre-dates the annexation of Pleasantburg in 1831 and was printed for Mills’ Atlas to depict all ownership and property claims. The publisher of the atlas later went on the design the Washington Monument. Mills was also the architect for the original Greenville Courthouse, which was completed in 1823.
The economy at this time relied heavily on cotton and wool milling, and the numerous mills were documented here. The town eventually became home to the Greenville and Columbia Railway, causing the city to grow as a central hub, and allowing residents more access to the rest of the state and country.
