Greenville Culinary and History Tours offers look at city’s past

In 1797, the Village of Pleasantburg at Greenville Court House was laid out in what is now known as the Court Square area of downtown Greenville.

The original courthouse, built in 1918, still stands today and includes carvings of spindles and cotton balls, representing the textile mills in the area. Other buildings of note include the Westin Poinsett Hotel, which is approaching its 100th birthday, and the oldest building on Main Street, which now houses Soby’s New South Cuisine.
