Greenville

3.7
Greenville is a small city and the county seat of Washington County, Mississippi, United States. The population was 34,400 at the 2010 census. It is located in the area of historic cotton plantations and culture known as the Mississippi Delta.HistoryThis area was occupied by indigenous peoples when explored by the French, who established a colony at Natchez, Mississippi, the home of the historic Natchez people, and later European-American colonists. The United States Congress passed the Indian Removal Act in 1830, and forced most of the Southeastern tribes to Indian Territory during the following decade.Greenville was founded in 1824 by William W. Blanton, who filed for land from the United States government. He was granted section four, township eighteen, range eight west. This plot now constitutes most of downtown Greenville.Greenville became the county seat in 1844. The two previous county seats, New Mexico and Princeton, had both caved into the Mississippi River.The current city of Greenville is the third in the State to bear the name. The first, located to the south near Natchez, became defunct soon after the American Revolution as European-American settlement was concentrated to the east.

Where to stay in Greenville

The town's main hotel chains cluster by the side of Highway 278, where comfy rooms and onsite restaurants cater to business travelers passing through and families with small children. Follow the road into the city center to find family-owned and budget-friendly guesthouses and small hotels offering good access to the city's main attraction. To the west, close to the lake, you'll discover distinctive inns with good views of the water. Look to the south of the city for the odd luxury plantation/hotel.
