Greenville, Mississippi

Greenville is a city on the Mississippi River, in the state of Mississippi. The city occupies almost 28 square miles and has a current population of nearly 43,000. It is the county seat of Washington County, and the eight largest city in the state. Greenville is Mississippi's largest port city, with cultural offerings including the Hwy 61 Blues Museum, The Jim Henson-Kermit the Frog Museum and a museum dedicated to the history of the flood of 1927. Nelson Street's Southern Whispers Restaurant is a notable stop on the Mississippi Blues Trail, which commemorates important landmarks in the history of American blues and jazz music.

The current city is the third municipality in the state to bear the name of Greenville, after Revolutionary War hero Nathaniel Greene. The first was a failed settlement near Natchez. The second, approximately three miles from present-day Greenville, was a thriving business center for the local cotton plantations, and was burned down during the siege of Vicksburg. Veterans returning after the Civil War determined to rebuild, choosing a higher point of land nearby. The new town suffered setbacks, including a yellow fever epidemic in 1877 and a flood in 1890, two years after organizing its first cotton exchange. At the time of the 1927 flood, Greenville had a well-developed business district, with theaters, banks, churches and hospitals. In 1930, the United States Gypsum Company acquired the former Greenville Insulating Board Corporation, and continues to be one of Greenville's largest employers. In 1954, the city was chosen as the new home of Alexander Smith & Sons Carpet Company, then the largest carpet producer in the world. The Smith company merged with Mohawk carpets in 1956, to form Mohasco Industries, Inc. In the 21st century, Greenville industry includes shipbuilding, tourism and service industries. Delta Regional Medical Center is a top employer, and the city hosts two riverboat casinos on Lake Ferguson.
