The name Greenville comes from the Fort Greeneville, once the largest wooden fort in North America. The fort was built in 1793 and housed the Legion of the United States before they went into the Battle of Fallen Timbers, which was the final battle of the Northwest Indian War. After the battle, the Treaty of Greenville was signed for which 1,130 chiefs and warriors came to the fort. This ended the wars in the area and settlers moved into the Northwest Territory. In 1808 the fort was already abandoned and the city of Greenville was founded.
