Great idea for a thread. I really enjoy historical photos of eastern NC towns!

Old Downtown Greenville NC - YouTube

Film footage of downtown Greenville in 1941. Interesting to see the flow of people on the sidewalks. If we could get half that volume..., quarter...

Here are some photos from the Greenville Guardian, on the old Imperial Tobacco Warehouse on Atlantic Street.

Sad to see it in this shape now, but hopefully something BIG will replace it. It looks ready for that to occur.

greenville Aerial Circa 1911 photo - J. Thomas Forrest photos at pbase.com


I came across a photo collection of old Greenville photos, but I'm doubting the date of this photo. It's dated 1911, but I'm thinking it's more like 1981. To the best of my knowledge, the building at 5 Points came down in 1975, and then Dickinson was shortened sometime after; and the majority of eastern downtown was razed around 1965. Until around 1970 the current Town Commons was a slum with houses lining the street. No such houses in the pic, but not too clear on what is there (though the Town Commons is non-descript anyway, so there's no landmarks to grab there). Throw in traffic lanes, painted parking lots, and the 10 story dorms on campus, and I just can't see 1911. Late 70's at the earliest. Anybody have a better idea?

Sheppard Memorial Library was built in 1930 and expanded in 2000.

Hamís, which opened in the late 1990s isn't there yet.

The Police Fire/Rescue Headquarters was built in 1995.

Fletcher dorm built in 1963

White Dorm built in 1968

Greene Dorm built in 1966.

The Greenville Utilities building seems to be there, which was built in 1973

Pirates Landing is still there, but unsure of the build date.

Sheppard has actually had a few expansions. The wings of the original 1930 building were added in 1969. Those are present in that photo.

What's Pirates Landing?

Was Pirates Landing the apartments that were on the lot where the Bankruptcy Court was recently built?

Also, it appears that Evans St. is the mall version in the photo. That was created in the '60's (I think) and converted back to auto access in the 90's/early 00's (I think).

It was definitely the mall version in the late 70's - 80's. I had a friend who lived in Greenville at the time and we met up for lunch at a place called Bisette's not too far from the University. Even though it was the early 80's, that diner had the feeling of the 1950's..

The apartments that sat where the bankruptcy court is now were called Campus Point.
