The climate in this area is characterized by hot, humid summers and generally mild to cool winters. According to the Köppen Climate Classification system, Greensburg has a humid subtropical climate, abbreviated "Cfa" on climate maps.[6]

The highest recorded temperature at Greensburg was 114 °F (46 °C) on July 28, 1930.


The 1780 settlement was originally known as "Glover's Station", for local landowner John Glover, who received 193 acres (0.78 km2) in the area as a military grant after the American Revolution.[7]

Following the establishment of Green County (named for Revolutionary War Maj. General Nathanael Greene[7]) from parts of Lincoln and Nelson counties in 1792, Greensburg was laid out and established two years later as its eponymous seat of government.[8] It was incorporated as a city a year after that.[7] The central Public Square was also laid out in 1795 and has been retained as designed since then, with the only changes being the paving of the square with concrete and the installation of concrete dividers and parking meters in the four quadrants.[9]

The first post office arrived in 1807 and was variously known as "Greensburg" and "Greensburg Court House" during the early 19th century.[7]
