Greenview, a farming community three miles north of Bonanza in southwestern Hopkins County, was settled by Green Weaver in 1845. A school opened at the site in the 1850s. After 1900 Greenview had a public school, which in 1905 enrolled thirty-three. By 1946 the enrollment had fallen to fifteen. The school closed the following year. In 1916 a church was organized in the community; it later burned and was rebuilt. By the late 1940s Greenview had a church, two stores, a cemetery, and a number of widely scattered dwellings. Greenview still had a church and cemetery in the mid-1980s, and a new community center was built in 2000.
