Stephen Smith, GCM Executive Director, accepted the $2,000 donation from Ivey Tapp as well as 2,700 items for GCM.

The 7-year-old received a fire truck escort down Line Street to make her annual birthday donation of more than 2,700 items and $2,000 to the nonprofit last Friday.

Work is set to start in late August and will add 5,500 in new square footage to the Jean M. Smith Branch of the Greenville County Library System.

Completed in 1910, the Greer Mill building on Connecticut Avenue is now undergoing a voluntary cleanup contract.

Greer Mill could house apartments

The old Greer Mill could soon find a new purpose.

The site, which was recently purchased by a company known as Greer Mill, LLC, is set to be developed for apartments and commercial use, according to public documents. A notice posted at the mill invited public comments on a proposed Voluntary Cleanup Contract through June 27.
