Greenville Sesquicentennial 2012

by Jeff Titcomb on June 6th, 2012

Greenville turns 150 years old this year!
It's tough to find a lot of history about the earliest days in Greenville. It seems the rough and rowdy bunch that settled this area didn't write much down and keep good records. We have pieces of their legacy left in the form of a few old buildings and a brief history that gets passed down, stories shared at our Greenville Cy Hall Memorial Museum here in town, on the corner of Mill and Main Streets. You should visit the museum sometime and see the displays about past residents and the Indian Valley Schools, which is on display this Summer! Greenville burned down several times and destroyed most of the early structures here. Amazingly we have a few residents that have lived here for 101 and 100 years! To think that these ladies have witnessed that many years of the history of Greenville. Our celebration will be in July this year during our Gold Diggers Day Celebrations! July 20th is a Friday night concert on Historical Main Street with Lacy J. Dalton performing her well known hit songs. Saturday, July 21st will be the 50th Anniversary of Gold Diggers Day Celebration started off with a parade down Main Street and a salute to as many of the past Parade Grand Marshalls as can be found representing the last 50 years. This will be the Best Parade yet for Greenville! The day will continue with Street Faire Vendors and Food Vendors that will offer a Great variety of goods and goodies. Come join us in this Special year of Celebration for the Charming, Western town of Greenville! It should be a Wonderful time for Family safe Fun and Celebrating our Historical, Western California town. Saturday night will feature a Classic Hot Rod Car Show on Highway 89, at the Mohawk Trading Company and Evergreen Market parking lot. There will be bands playing in front of the Way Station too, with a Street Dance on Main Street. It promises to be a Good time had by All. Bring your dance partner or come and meet someone special at the dance. Hopefully many will be able to attend this Special Celebration with other Greenvillagers and visitors alike. Greenville, A Premiere Gateway Community to Lake Almanor and Lassen Volcanic National Park!

Thank you Jeff! This is such a great place- we need to share with others what we have discovered in this Mystical - Magical Valley. After 40 years I am still one of the newcomers, but a real lover of My adopted Home Town. Everyone come visit and discover the Magic that is here,
