Overview

Remembering Greenville: Photographs from The Coxe Collection by Jeffrey R. Willis, Greenville County Historical Society Staff


Anchored at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Greenville is the cultural center of South Carolina's Piedmont. Today, residents and tourists often find themselves immersed among the charming shops and quaint cafes that line the avenues in the historic Main Street district. A revitalized area today, Greenville's Main Street was the commercial center of the town during the life of William Coxe, a Greenville photographer who acquired many early images and who brilliantly extended the collection with his own photographs. Remembering Greenville: Photographs from the Coxe Collection explores Greenville during the first half of the 20th century. Stunning black-and-white images enlighten readers about the "old" Greenville that virtually disappeared as the small city was transformed into a large metropolitan area. These images, taken from the 1900s to the 1960s, depict Furman University and Greenville Women's College, both then located in Greenville's downtown; Camp Wetherill, Greenville's Spanish-American War training camp; and such personalities as an older, but still legendary, "Shoeless" Joe Jackson.
