Greenville, Washington County, Oregon

Greenville Road at Oregon 47

Greenville is an unincorporated historic community in Washington County, Oregon, United States.[1] It is located about 2 miles south of Banks on Oregon Route 47.[2]

Greenville post office was established in 1871 and ran until 1907, when it was moved to the location of the former Banks post office and renamed Banks.[3] Greenville was likely a descriptive name for the verdant surroundings.[3]

At one time the community had a school, built in the 1870s, which as of 1990 was being used as a storage shed.[4] The area is part of the Forest Grove Rural Fire Protection District.[5]
