Historic Resources Survey
Historic Resources Survey Final Public Meeting

Sears Shelter at McPherson Park
100 E. Park Ave., Greenville
Representatives from WLA and City staff will discuss the properties and areas identified during the research and recommendations that will be made in the final report.
The City hired consulting firm WLA Studio to identify historically significant properties citywide and focusing on the following areas: West End, Village of West Greenville, Greater Sullivan, Cleveland Park, Nicholtown, North Main, Augusta Road, Sherwood Forest and Parkins Mill.
Beginning in late May, the consultant team toured the areas on foot to look for properties that appear to fit the criteria. Then, they gathered information such as the date of construction, exterior architectural details and style and historically significant owners/events.
City residents are also invited and encouraged to participate in the project. Residents can submit their own property, or property in their neighborhood for consideration by using an online interactive map and completing a short form at www.greenvillesc.gov/HistoricResourcesSurvey. The map continues to accept referrals from citizens.
