Carol Taylor, the chairman of the Hunt County Historical Commission, says Greenville churches in 1915 were determined to bring superstar evangelist Billy Sunday to town, but settled for chartering a train to hear him preach in Dallas.  Carol says women at the upper level of local society 100 years ago were the moral and cultural leaders of the community.
