Greene Countrie and Greene Countrie Village are 2 Newtown Square developments that include both condos and townhouses. They were built in the 1960s and early 1970s. They are located next to each other and share some amenities. Many, myself included, simply refer to the 2 developments as 'Greene Countrie' as there is little to distinguish them. There is a current controversy in Summer of 2018 regarding the removal of the dam that created Earle's Lake. See this article for more information.
