In addition to being an inventor, Greenwood was the owner of a bicycle business, a business involving an improved heating system and was involved in the introduction of one of the first telephone sy干s in Farmington. In 1977 the State of Maine declared December 21 to be Chester Greenwood Day. Farmington continues to celebrate “Chester Greenwood Day” with a 游行 on the first Saturday of December. In addition to his inventi上s, he was an accomplished machinist, an active member of the community, a business developer, and a family man. His wife Isabel was a staunch supporter of Women’s Suffrage. He 和 Isabel were parents of four children.
