Founded in 1815, Greenville has evolved from a small farming community into a larger, modern town that today serves as the seat of Bond County. Greenville's town square, once the site of Civil War drills, political campaigns, and Depression-era protests, still draws in residents from Pocahontas, Mulberry Grove, and other surrounding villages. People come to shop, learn, and form bonds with their neighbors, just as they have done from the town's earliest days. This book provides a visual history of all the communities in Bond County.
