The history of Greenwood, La., was filled with romance, feuds, fights and stirring events true to wild western form. Many a man "bit the dust" with his boots on in this last outpost for mail to the West. Letters were often marked “Hold for Texas,” when the twice-a-year visitors would collect their mail. A flourishing town in the 1850s, Greenwood had a tan yard, a saddlery, one distillery, three brick yards, a wagon and plow factory, a foundry and machine shop, a blacksmith shop, a tin shop, 7 stores, a Masonic Lodge, two two-story schools, five doctors, a Methodist Church, a 15-room hotel, and 9 thriving saloons, Traffic was heavy, averaging 100 wagons a day - pulled by 8 or 10 oxen to the wagon. In 1974, a small group of citizens, proud of their rich and colorful history in this area, met and organized for the first Greenwood Pioneer Club. The Greenwood Pioneer Club - a non-profit, community-minded organization - planned and directed the first Greenwood Pioneer Heritage Festival in 1979.
