Greenville, S.C. — The Greenville Revitalization Corporation (GRC) announced today that it has received a grant from Wells Fargo to be used for the Greenville Textile Heritage Park. Currently, GRC has finished the construction of the parking lot and children’s playground at Textile Heritage Park and has begun construction of the Mill Walk. The park will honor Greenville’s textile heritage and remember the life in the old mill villages while providing much-needed recreation space to the community.
Amy Coleman, Board Chair for GRC stated: “I want to thank Wells Fargo for our first grant dedicated to the construction of the museum/event center. Over the years the Bank has been a regular contributor to our efforts to build this park and to improve the lives of the people who live in the Textile Crescent. Their continued financial support and encouragement has allowed us to steadily increase our efforts to bring economic opportunity back to the Textile Crescent area. They have been terrific community partners.”
