Beautiful houses of the 19th century echo nostalgia for the past, while modern high-rises remind you that it is the 21st century. When in Greensboro reminders of its glorious history are everywhere.
The first settlers in the area were Germans and English who relocated there from Northern colonies. They reshaped the wild land into a settlement in 1740 and saw the Revolutionary war with battle in the area led by Nathanael Greene, a general who this city is named after. After that residents suggested a new seat for government – Greensboro and named it after the patriot commander.
Today Greensboro has developed into interesting city with its own style and charm distinct from its neighbors. About the only thing Greensboro really lacks is certainty in weather. Every season in Greensboro is unique with hot summers when temperatures reach the 90 F in July and winter temperatures - 40 F.
Such temperature drop caused by its location in the hills of North Carolina's Piedmont with Great Smoky Mountains to the west and the Atlantic beaches to the east. The area city occupies is 109.2sqmiles. The land is home to 223,891 people with famous author William Sydney Porter, but known as O. Henry born here.
Within the city is even O.Henry Hotel named in the author's honor and you can book this or any other hotel you like at Booked.net.
