Context/Comments
As the single residence remaining on Greenville's primary downtown thoroughfare, the Wetherbee House is a rare example of the modest cottage type of domestic architecture common to this town in the dacades following the Civil War. It stands as a concrete reminder of the town's post-war re-establishment as a commercial center for the Delta region.
