Moments in History: Before there was Greenville

Feather Publishing

  Before Greenville grew to be the “populated” town it is today, people were drawn to the bustling gold camp of Round Valley.

  By 1862 the camp had a population of more than 378 people. Within its boundaries there were three general stores, four saloons, a hotel, a livery stable, gambling halls, a sawmill, a school, Wells Fargo Express and residential homes.

  The location of Round Valley, however, made it inconvenient for wagon traffic. Before long, businesses moved down the hill, giving birth to the town of Greenville. According to the most recent census record, U.S. Census 2010, the town is now home to more than 2,000 residents.
