1. Greenville Public Library. The library's roots go back to 1856 when a group of Greenville ladies decided to establish a library in the town. By the early 1900s, the ladies sought funding for the building and Juliette Hoiles, the president of the ladies' group, wrote to Andrew Carnegie. Carnegie would donate $10,000 for funds.
