Abstract:
The Greenville Bus Station sits on Fifth Street, closed, neglected and bereft. Few realize that this building is the only extant example of the late 1930’s style of architecture known as “Streamline” or “Art-Moderne” in downtown Greenville. By 1935, the Carolina Coach Company and other lines had several buses a day coming through Greenville. The bus station then was at Pleasant’s College Store, the corner of Fifth and Reade Streets. By 1940, Dr. William I. Wooten (1893-1943) proposed to build a bus station on his property at the corner of Greene and Fifth Streets. After many delays, Wooten built the bus station and it opened in April 1942. It was hoped the building would be restored back to its original glory and become a landmark among Greenville’s treasured architectural legacy.

The interior and exterior photos showcase modern day conveniences coexisting with a nearly century old brick and woodwork structure.
