Description: Caption reads; "View of North End of Broadway in 1858. Old Courthouse in Background." The modern city of Greenville stands on the site of Greene Ville Fort, built in 1793 by Anthony Wayne as a staging point for his 1794 campaigns against hostile Native Americans in the area. The modern city was founded in 1808 and by the turn of the twentieth century it was the main metropolitan center of Darke County. Most of the residents in Darke County, however, were farmers in the countryside surrounding Greenville. View on Ohio Memory.
