FC: The History of Greenbrier
1: The History of Greenbrier In 1854, a squatter named Hubbard sold the land that present day Greenbrier is on for $2 an acre to Henderson Moore. He cleared timber from a spot near the spring just west of the present Greenbrier Junior High building. Wild turkey, black panthers, deer and black bear inhabited the woods nearby. Moore came from North Carolina and started a horse driven gin and blacksmith shop that attracted many settlers passing through to Missouri and Tennessee. Later, he built a water wheel and started a mill at the waterfall on Mill Creek. The little settlement had three basic industries: a blacksmith, cotton gin, and grain mill. In the beginning, Greenbrier was known as Mooresville, but was renamed after the Civil War because of the tangled green briars on a nearby creek. It was known as a fast growing little settlement by 1871. By 1873, roads were being rapidly improved and created.Greenbrier was officially incorporated as a town on April 5, 1880. By most of the older generation, Greenbrier has been said to be the oldest town in Faulkner County and all of its history must be preserved.
