To Greenville, Illinois, a small community with big ideas. Whether you’re a weekend traveler looking for unique shopping and dining or if you’re in the market for a new home, Greenville has something to offer everyone. Greenville, the county seat of Bond County, has a population of around 6,000, but don’t let our size fool you. In Greenville you can still enjoy a safe and peaceful walk in one of our many neighborhoods, study for a degree at Greenville College, shop in a antique mall, or take in the excitement of the Bond County Fair.

Everything you are looking for in a small town, you will find in Greenville without the hassle of traffic, pollution, and crime.

Greenville, a friendly community seeking to maintain its historic identity and uniqueness while moving forward economically and forging new history for the next generation. A home to warm, compassionate, honest, hard working people who hold a desire to continually make their community a better place to live.

a community where the charm of bygone days still lingers. A community which offers the life supporting environment of

“small-town America” in its excellent health care facilities, fine school system, abundant water supplies, beautiful serene countryside, wide array of recreation and educational opportunities, and variety of churches.

Greenville, a place where you just might find time to sit on the porch, take a stroll, or chat with a neighbor. A place to share time and create memories with family and friends. Greenville, a great place to visit, live, work, and play.
Quality of Life
   Greenville is the type of community that most strive to become. The people here enjoy a sense of togetherness and pride in their town. The years continue to add more character to the town and never erase qualities like the quaint downtown square, municipal band performances, the county fair, Fourth of July Fireworks, high school homecoming parades, the fall harvest and apple butter sale, and the Christmas Courthouse Lighting. Greenville remains a community that cares about the education of its young, the job opportunities of the working residents, and the care of its older residents.
   Located on Interstate 70, Greenville offers the best of both worlds. We offer all of the amenities of living in a small rural community. Job opportunities, modest cost of living, safety and security. However, the hustle and bustle of St. Louis, home of the St. Louis Cardinals and St. Louis Rams, is only 45 miles away.
