Colonel Elias Earle Historic District
Colonel Elias Earle Historic District is an older neighborhood dating back to the mid 1800's, but it was in the early 1900's when the area saw the most development and growth. It is located to north of Downtown Greenville and comprises predominantly of James Street and Earle Street.
This is a significant architectural area as it contains two of Greenville's earliest landmarks - "Earle Town House" on James Street and "Whitehall" on Earle Street. There are many excellent examples of early 20th century historical revival styles including Neo-Classical, Dutch Colonial, Georgian Revival, English Cottage, and Tudor.
Residents are very passionate about their neighborhood. The Neighborhood Association is very prominent and arranges seasonal 'block parties', Holiday Tour of Homes, and other social events. It states "The purpose of the Association is to perpetuate the Colonel Elias Earle Historic District, to bring the families of the community into closer association, to strengthen the feeling of pride in the community, and to take collective and united action for the residents’ best interest."
House sizes vary from 2 bed 1 bath homes valued in the low $200's to very grand, beautiful homes priced up to $1m. With such variety, this is truly a friendly and diverse neighborhood. A place for everyone!
