Allen Warren (1829-1904) was Greenville’s first florist, selling flowers all over the South after the railroad came to Greenville in 1890. The Riverside Nursery gained statewide notoriety and was a leading supplier of trees and shrubs in the South at the time. After his death, the nursery fell to his son, Ollen E. Warren. The nursery appears to be gone by 1907.
