A.B. Ellington (1857-1941) came to Greenville as a metal worker. He later was a wall paper agent, worked for J. B. Cherry and then opened a "Racket Store." He began to sell books in his store and later opened Ellington’s Book Store. The bookstore was a Greenville landmark and sold school textbooks, school supplies and sold the first E.C.T.T.S. pennants and souvenirs for female students. The Book Store moved several times and was last purchased by Mrs. Wendell Smiley.
