Old Greenville County Courthouse

The historic Old Greenville County Courthouse building in Greenville, South Carolina, was built in 1918. Today it houses the M Judson Bookstore and The Chocolate Moose bakery.


Greenville (pop. 61,000+) is located in the "Upstate" region of South Carolina. Here, Falls Park, which hugs the Reedy River, is a scenic parkland paradise of large waterfalls, scattered boulders, and manicured green spaces situated at the heart of a thriving central business district offering diverse restaurants, interesting shops, and luxurious hotels. A striking pedestrian bridge, a children’s downtown scavenger hunt for hidden bronze mice, and lots of shade trees also add to Downtown Greenville’s allure. Despite its relatively small city population, Greenville has a metro population of around 851,000.

M. Judson Booksellers & Storytellers is now open in the historic courthouse building next to the Westin Poinsett hotel on Main Street. The bookstore offers a blend of experiences that fits in well with the Main Street Greenville atmosphere – a carefully chosen selection of books for sale, a cafe for socializing – featuring items made from recipes in selected cookbooks.

It’s also a good excuse to ascend the steps and explore the interior space of this historic building which began as the county courthouse, then served as the family courthouse before it closed and ended up on the National register of Historic Places

Today’s photo shows a plaque at the Greenville County Court House which indicates it was erected in 1916 .. for additional prespectives here are links showing the Greenville County Court House at sunrise, a photo of a bride posing on the court house steps, also a court house railing in the sunlight and a photo showing the Greenville Christmas tree being taken down. However in looking at my previous post I found it was all the way back to January of 2006 since I have shared a photo of the Court House by its self.
