Welcome to Greenville, Kentucky! The Greenville Tourism Commission is so glad you’re interested in our town! Located among the rolling hills of Western Kentucky, Greenville extends true southern hospitality to all who visit. Whether you attend one of special events, visit the local eateries, or browse for specialty items in some of our unique shops, your visit to Greenville will not be disappointing.
As the county seat for Muhlenberg County, the historic square is anchored with a beautiful 100+ year old court house that plays hostess to Kentucky’s second largest clock/bell tower dome. The clock tower is also the largest open belfry of any pre-fabricated cupola in the United States with a height of 56.5’ and bas of 35.4’ wide. The entire courthouse, as well as most of downtown has recently undergone a major renovation process. Downtown has once again become a center for vitality and growth. There are a wide variety of shops to choose from as well as a café/music store/coffee house combination right in downtown.
If festivals and events are what you’re into, Greenville is the right town! We offer a variety of events throughout the year including “Saturdays on the Square,” which was named a summer 2011 Top 10 Event by the Kentucky Travel Industry Association, “Twi-Light Drive-In Antique Car Show,” “Squash & Gobble” Arts Bazaar & Fall Festival, annual Christmas Parade, and various downtown merchant open houses. The tourism commission is constantly working on improving Greenville and adding to our repertoire of events. Be sure to visit Greenville because when you arrive, you’re just in time!
