The building cost $15,000 and took 5 months to complete. "For the first time in Greenville's 119 years of history in which great progress was made in every other direction, the city really had its own building in which to conduct its business. In the past they had been compelled to meet in any old house by the side of the road... and many were the places they met to struggle with the city's business." Much of the credit for the building's materialization was due to Mayor Lee Loyd.
