William and Obadiah Hill bought this building from Albert Hill in the early 1900s. They opened a farm supply store that sold everything from clothing to hardware and was the social center of Greenville for much of the first half of the 20th century. President Roosevelt is said to have even stopped by on one occasion, inquiring about politics. Its recent restoration is outstanding.
