Greenville is a Mississippi River cruise port and city in Washington County (Mississippi, USA) with population around 35,000. The area is famous for its numerous historic Mississippi Delta cotton plantations.
The town was founded in 1824 and became county seat in 1844. The town was destroyed in 1863 (during the siege of Vicksburg) when Union Navy troops burned all buildings and all inhabitants took refuge in the plantation houses. After the war, the former residents started building again on a new site - on Lake Ferguson's eastern bank, at the highest point between Vicksburg and Memphis.
Among the most popular tourist attractions are Winterville Mounds Historic Site (earthwork mounds constructed by the indigenous Natchez people in 13th-15th centuries) and Winterville Mounds (designated state park and National Historic Landmark).
