Home of Doe’s Eat Place, best steaks in the country. And within a 25 miles radius, there were born:

Shelby Foote (writer)
Jim Henson (Muppet creator)
B.B. King (musician)
Edgar and Johnny Winter (musicians)
Bruce Blackmon (musician/songwriter, “Moonlight Feels Right”)
Hodding Carter, Jr. (liberal writer)

Greenville went in decline around the 1980’s but is trying to recover, little by little. Good news about the plant opening.
