Greenville, Tex., county seat of Hunt County 1886. H. Wellge, sk. Beck & Pauli, litho.

Panoramic map of Greenville, TX, published in 1886. Settlement began in the region in the 1820's as people discovered the fertile land in the Red River Valley. Hunt County was officially formed by an act of the first Texas State legislature on April 11, 1846. A log courthouse was erected in the new county seat, which was named Greenville in honor of Thomas Jefferson Green, a beloved patriot of the Republic of Texas.

This map captures the town as it appeared just six years after the arrival of the railroad, transforming Greenville into the railroad hub of Northeast Texas. Railroad transportation made it possible to deliver the high-quality cotton grown in the region to the finest mills in Europe.
