Greenville Revitalization Corporation would like to say THANK YOU to everyone who came out on Saturday to help us celebrate the 13th Annual Textile Heritage Day!
The Textile Heritage Park, located right across Smythe St. from the Lofts of Greenville (the former Monaghan Mill), is dedicated to preserving the textile history of Greenville.
On Saturday, we unveiled the Mill Walk, courtesy of the Greenville Textile Heritage Society. Each of the mill plaques along the Mill Walk is dedicated to one of the 13 mills that once operated in Greenville County. You can read about the history of each mill and even buy a brick! Many folks in Greenville want to give thanks to a parent or grandparent who worked in a mill and lived in a mill village. Buying a brick in their name is a perfect way to honor the many years of hard work that went into making Greenville the Textile Capital of the World.
