Carol Taylor, chairman of the Hunt County Historical Commission, says ten colleges once resided in Hunt County.  One of them was Texas Holiness University, in Peniel, a community that is now part of Greenville on the city's northwest side.  Texas Holiness merged with another university and is now Southern Nazarene University in Bethany, Oklahoma.
