He and his family lived there most of his adult years. It was an area of strong abolitionist and Unionist views and yeoman farmers, an environment which influenced Johnson's outlook.The Greenville Historic District was established in 1974.The U.S. Navy Los Angeles-class submarine USS Greeneville (SSN-772) was named in honor of the town.The town officially hosts the Greeneville Astros baseball club of the Appalachian League, though the club actually plays in the nearby city of Tusculum.
