History of Glennville
Indian tribes lived in this vicinity for hundreds of years, but European settlement started in the 18th and 19th centuries. Glennville, specifically, was formed when residents of outlying states started looking for new land to start their own businesses and communities. They cleared thick forest to build a church, shops, houses, and eventually a post office opened in 1889 by a teacher named Glennville.
Glennville’s claim to fame is as the home of the Vidalia onion, focus of an annual festival in May. A 62 acre recreation park brings out families throughout the year for games of softball and picnics. There are just two hotels, so tourism is not a big employer in the town, but that just adds to its charm as a place to call home.
