Professional and courteous!
We have used Rose Moving twice now. Once to move our entire home across country, and then a second time to move the rest of our items from storage. Both experiences were great. Jim was friendly and helpful in quoting the jobs and always answered any questions promptly. The movers handling the jobs were all professional and courteous and they took great care with all of our property. I would definitely recommend Rose Moving!

My family had a wonderful experience with Rose Moving.
We compared 4 other companies and they were the easiest estimate to schedule and offered the best product.  All the employees, from the office personnel to the guy giving the estimate to the guys packing, loading and unloading us were professional, courteous and personable.  They took measures to protect everything including the stairwell at our new house.  NOTHING was damaged.  We have NO reservations about recommending Rose Moving to anyone we know.

Law and government

The city of Greenville (Get Moving Estimate for Greenville, MI) adopted the Council-Manager form of municipal government in 1976.

History

The colony of South Carolina was founded in 1663 by King Charles II, who split the land and gave it to eight nobles. After mismanagement of the colony, the area was reclaimed by the English Crown. The area was part of the Cherokee Nation's protected grounds after the Treaty of 1763, which ended the French and Indian War. No White man was allowed to enter, though some families already had settled just within the boundary, and White traders regularly crossed the area. The first White man to settle permanently in the area was Richard Pearis; he married a Cherokee and was given several tracts of land by the tribe. The City of Greenville (Get Movers Cost for Greenville, MI) and Paris Mountain (named after Pearis), are on part of that land. During the American Revolution, the Cherokee (and Pearis) sided with the British. After a campaign in 1776, the Cherokee agreed to the Treaty of DeWitt's Corner, ceding territory that includes present-day Greenville (Get Relocation Prices for Greenville, MI) County to South Carolina.

Greenville (Get Moving Prices for Greenville, MI) was originally called Pleasantburg before an 1831 name change. Greenville (Get Relocation Quote for Greenville, MI) County was created in 1786 from Spartanburg District (now Spartanburg County), but was called Greenville (Get Moves Prices for Greenville, MI) District from 1800 until 1868. Greenville (Get Relocation Prices for Greenville, MI) may have been named for American Revolutionary General Nathanael Greene, or perhaps for an early resident, Isaac Green.>. Greenville (Get Moves Cost for Greenville, MI) is the mother district to Pendleton District (now Anderson County), Pickens District (now Pickens County) and Oconee District (now Oconee County).

In February, 1869, Greenville (Get Moves Quote for Greenville, MI)'s Town Charter was amended by the S. C. General Assembly establishing Greenville (Get Moves Prices for Greenville, MI), the town, as a City.

In 1917, when Greenville (Get Movers Cost for Greenville, MI) was known as the "Textile Center of the World," Old Textile Hall was designed by the J. E. Sirrine Company as the first exposition facility in the Southeast for textile products and machinery. Textile Hall also served as a civic auditorium. The building was listed on National Register in 1980 before being demolished in 1992.

Greenville (Get Moving Cost for Greenville, MI) served as a training camp center for Army recruits during World War I. This eventually fostered the development of Donaldson Air Force Base, built during World War II, which was very important to the economy of the City of Greenville (Get Moving Cost for Greenville, MI). Donaldson served as a military base until the early 1960s, when it was returned to the City of Greenville (Get Movers Quote for Greenville, MI). The former air base has been developed into a business park. It contains military-style barracks which are used now by businesses.

Until the late 1960s, blacks in the area were subject to segregationist restrictions; for example, they were limited to the back of city buses, were not permitted to stay in hotels or motels for whites, had to sit in the balcony of movie theaters, and were not permitted to use the public library, which partially motivated the activism of Jesse Jackson. Jackson, working through the NAACP, organized a sit-in at Greenville (Get Relocation Quote for Greenville, MI)'s F.W. Woolworth "five and dime" store, and quickly emerged as a civil rights leader. On August 9, 1960, a sit-in at the S. H. Kress store that eventually led to the U.S. Supreme Court decision Peterson v. Greenville (Get Move Prices for Greenville, MI) (1963), which ruled that private citizens must ignore local segregation ordinances because they violated the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.

Downtown renewal

Greenville (Get Movers Cost for Greenville, MI) has one of the last Frank Lloyd Wright homes ever built, constructed in 1954.

At one time the retail center of the region, Greenville (Get Moves Quote for Greenville, MI)'s downtown district began to languish in the 1960s as shopping centers lured the retailers and customers to the suburbs. In response, the City started a downtown renewal project.

City leaders initially focused on improving the streetscape along a portion of Main Street in the Central Business District. This included narrowing the street from four lanes to two lanes; installing angled parking spaces, trees, flowers and light fixtures; and creating parks and plazas throughout the central core of downtown. Initial planning began in the 1970s and under Mayor Max Heller, an Austrian immigrant who wanted to implement some of the urban features he had seen in Europe. The downtown streetscape renovation was designed by Landscape Architect Lawrence (Lawrence, Michigan Relocation Company) Halprin.

In the 1980s, Greenville (Get Moves Cost for Greenville, MI) turned to laying the foundation for their downtown vision and providing an example of business potential to encourage business relocation to downtown (examples include the Greenville (Get Movers Quote for Greenville, MI) Commons/Hyatt Regency hotel). The city worked with consultants to develop and implement a downtown master plan and facilitated public-private investment partnerships which resulted in the city's first luxury convention hotel on Main Street.

Through the 1990s Greenville (Get Move Quote for Greenville, MI) continued to strengthen its public/private partnerships to create strong anchors throughout downtown. The city redeveloped a languishing industrial area adjacent to the West End Historic District into a thriving performing arts complex that incorporated historically significant buildings. It then stabilized the stagnant historic district with the transformation of an abandoned cotton warehouse into the West End Market, a mixed-use project of shops, restaurants, and offices, which in turn encouraged adaptive reuse of several other historic buildings throughout downtown. The city's initiative to invest in its blighted urban center at a time when such revitalization was unpopular, not only successfully encouraged private investment, but also eventually garnered recognition from municipalities across the United States.

Although the majority of Greenville (Get Movers Quote for Greenville, MI)-area residents live outside of the central urban core, the last decade has brought a significant increase in downtown living and working as new luxury condos, apartments and lofts go up and more businesses are moving their offices to the now thriving downtown.

The National Trust for Historic Preservation awarded Greenville (Get Moves Estimate for Greenville, MI) with the Great American Main Street Award in 2003 and 2009. Since then it has been featured in numerous publications, including Southern Living Magazine and the U.S. Airways Magazine (March 2010).
