Summer 2022 Activity: 
Self-guided History Explorer Walk in Greensboro Village & Greensboro Bend

Looking for a fun, interesting activity this summer?

Take the updated and improved self-guided History Explorer Walk in Greensboro Village or Greensboro Bend. 
(The walk will be posted from mid-June through September.)

Our self-guided history explorer walks from the past few years are resting this summer; but the information below can still be printed-out to learn about some of the older buildings in Greensboro Village and Greensboro Bend. Locations, building 'names,' and architectural styles and elements are shown in the printable brochures.

Those whose interest has been piqued can learn much more in the GHS publication, Architectural Walking Guide to Greensboro Village, which contains interesting information about many of the buildings in the tour and is for sale at the GHS bookshop and can be checked-out from the Greensboro Free Library.
