Greenville

Recommended Posts

I remember reading somewhere that this is Mississippi's 4th largest city. I also remember someone saying this city had grown quite a bit since the last time they were there. Are there any developments going on here?

The city is proceeding with plans for a larger convention center. I believe that another small casino may be in the works as well. I'd love for someone to buy the old Hotel Greenville, an Art Deco landmark, and restore it as a hotel again (it's apartments now). Greenville has potential, but hasn't seemed to grasp the go-go spirit of places like Hattiesburg or Tupelo.

The Hotel Greenville appears far less attractive in this post card view from 1939. Believe it or not, the details on the building give it some discinction. It is, I believe, a retirement apartment building now.

I think Greenville is the 5th largest city in Mississippi.

Behind Jackson , Gulfport , Biloxi , and Hattiesburg.

Greenville is just barely ahead of Meridian. Tupelo and Southaven are gaining ground .

New Bridge Marks Major Milestone

The construction of the new bridge from Greenville to Lake Village, Arkansas has marked a major milestone in construction.

While this may not be the most unusual design, it's still fairly handsome.

Harlow's Casino

The owner of Harlow's Casino hopes that the relatively elaborate design of his casino and hotel will set it apart from the more downmarket offerings of his competitors. Unfortunately, I'm doubtful that another small casino can fix Greenville's woes at this point. While I am pleased to see something built which is obviously trying to do more than scrape the bottom of the pond, I'd be happier to see Greenville develop stronger industry and a real tax base. For a town which has lost 17 per cent of its population in the last decade, that's a tall order. Is another caino the right path for Greenville to tread?

Downtown Bank Building Renovated as Living Space

At least one persin is realizing the potential of renovating downtown commercial buildings as mixed-use living space. A former bank building now houses at least 8000 sq. feet of living space and at least as much potential commercial space. While I'm not sure that poetry readings will find a huge following in Greenville, I like the sentiment expressed here. The downtown areas of many smaller cities offer almost unlimited potential for creative thinking in reviving their struggling downtown cores. I hope to see more of this happening.
