Side 1
West Commerce Street Historic District


The completion of the railroad in the late 1850s brought this District into being. The District grew into a major trade center between Montgomery and Mobile. The capital accumulated from this trade allowed the construction of brick commercial buildings, most of them completed by 1890. The downtown area was revitalized in the spring of 1997.

Side 2
Historic Greenville Depot


The Depot highlights the West Commerce Street Historic District and is symbolic of the major role the railroad transportation system played in making Greenville a major regional trade center. For many years, this was the sole shipping point for a six-county area of south-central Alabama. Passengers met here to catch the silver Hummingbird for a trip to the city. Built in 1910, reconstructed in 1924 and restored in 1995, the Old Depot is one of the few remaining brick and stucco buildings of its kind in south Alabama.
