Greensboro is a diverse community located halfway in between the mountains and the coast. Named for the Patriot and revolutionary war hero Nathaniel Greene, Greensboro was founded in 1808 as the geographic center of Guilford County. Today, our residents enjoy a rich quality of life flavored by a vibrant downtown, 80 miles of walking and biking trails, close access to state-of-the-art healthcare, and a variety of cultural opportunities.
If shopping is your bag, Friendly Center, The Village at North Elm, and Four Seasonís Town Centre offer a nice blend of upscale and everyday options. Sensible, steady weather with four distinct seasons describes Greensboro well. Truly living up to its name, Greensboro comes alive in the spring with waves of blooms and green, tree-lined streets framing the community with new life.
There is something about the brilliant Carolina blue skies, reverence for history, and our can-do attitude that makes Greensboro a unique and forward-moving city. Because we fully embrace our creative character, we value the contributions of students and young professionals, growing families, and retirees with lifelong wisdom to share. We look forward to seeing you on Elm Street soon!
