Greenville, a city honored with the title of a state landmark by the Texas Historical Commision, was home to many of America's cowboys from the early 1800's to today. Due to its past, this northern-Texas county has many state and national markers, some notable ones are in downtown Greenville. These landmarks aren't just important to the 25,000+ residents that call the quaint Texas town home, as they've been recognized by the National Register of Historical Places. Tour the petite downtown and view Greenville's first railroad depot, a gorgeous post office completed in 1910, and many other architectural beauties including the Hunt County Courthouse which highlights the pleasing aesthetic of local granite.
If history isn't your biggest interest, downtown Greenville has a number of locally owned businesses including wineries, gift shops, and antique stores to get lost in, as well. Plus, the air conditioning will be welcome if you're out in the Texas summer heat!
Founded in the 1800's, Greenville is steeped in history, making its downtown area quaint and charming. Greenville's center is lined with sidewalks helping you and your pet explore safely. Venture too far west or east, however, and you'll find that the sidewalks disappear.
Greenville's past can be easily seen and enjoyed by anyone who walks through its downtown. However, you won't be walking long, as the area is only a few blocks, existing in a small radius with Lee Street as its central point.Climates can be harsh in the prairie. When the Texan plains aren't in a drought, the occasional rain can make the air thick with humidity. If you're planning a walk around Greenville, be sure to bring water for yourself and for your leashed friend. Make a point to take breaks in the shade, offer water, and you can even dab or pour cool water on their paws to help them stay cool.
As a local favorite, Wright Park has a lot to offer those who explore the world on two legs such as tennis courts, a pavilion, a playground, free parking, and a public restroom. But there's plenty of space for a walk or jog through the park.
Graham Park is only five minutes north of downtown and is popular with families in the area due to its updated playground equipment, multiple sports fields, and a quaint fishing pond.
