Beautifying and Improving Greenville, S.C.


In 1907, the landscape architecture firm Kelsey & Guild, of Boston, MA, prepared a report for the Municipal League of Greenville in which they outlined, “the possibilities for beautifying and improving Greenville and…practical ways to accomplish results.”  This report, presented here in its final published version as well as the typescript version initially submitted to the League, provides a fascinating snapshot of the realities of life in Greenville over a century ago, as well as giving evidence of the early planning that went into creating the city we know today.
