— Reedy River Historic Park —

Greenville County was Indian Territory before the Revolution. European settlers were forbidden to live here until 1777, when Cherokee Indians were forced to cede this land to the new state. Most of modern day Greenville was hunting land used by the Cherokees, whose main villages were located in modern day Oconee County. A part of the Iroquoian nation, the Cherokee may have set up temporary summer camps along the banks of the Reedy River. In the nineteenth and early twentieth century, Indian artifacts were found along the north bank of the river.
