    Greenville: The Hometown of Ray Charles

    RUSSELL MICK 

    Although he was born in Georgia, Charles had deep ties to Florida. He was raised in Greenville, educated in St. Augustine at the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind, and played at clubs around Orlando before heading across the nation to Seattle and fame.

    Greenville commemorated the music legend by restoring his childhood home.
