Description From Owner:
  • Pop. 2,500. In Reg. Mun. of Hamilton-Wentworth on Glen Cr. and C. Rd. 504, 1 km. N of Hwy 8, 4 km. NW of Dundas.
  • The place was known as Franklin Corners and Joyce's Corners until the post office was established in 1853 as Greensville after pioneer settler William Green who settled in 1799.
  • A half mi. (.8 km.) W of Greensville was Crook's Hollow, where James Crook operated Upper Canada's first paper mill.
  • Crook built the mill in 1826 because of the growing domestic market and the high tariff imposed on imported paper.
  • The mill operated until it was destroyed by fire in 1875. In 1860 Greensville was the home of Ontario's largest distillery, which was converted to a malt house in 1870.
