Inscription.  Greenville was originally founded in 1831 along the banks of the Reedy River. Falls Park, River Place and The Peace Center have replaced the long gone textile mills that once dotted the River. Today, the Reedy River continues to be a primary catalyst in Greenville's ongoing re-development and is the center of social and economic activity in downtown.
