Greenville History

The town, which was named after Gen. Nathaniel Greene, developed as a manufacturing town early on. It housed a cement-block plant, flour mills, a railroad manufacturer, an automobile factory, saw and planning mills, foundries, machine shops, bridge works, steelworks, and gristmills. The nearby Shenango River provided the water power required by these industrial units. The population boomed during the 1940s, however, it subsequently decreased. In 2002, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania designated Greenville as a financially distressed municipality.
