Early Guilford County
The David and Rachel Caldwell Historical Center is located at 3211 W. Cornwallis Dr., bordered by Holden and Hobbs Roads. The land once belonged to the Caldwells, one of Greensboro’s most influential founding couples, and it was here that they raised a family, ran a farm and launched an elite prep school for young men. Rev. Caldwell served the congregations of Buffalo and Alamance Presbyterian churches and was a political leader during the Revolutionary War. The Caldwell Center, open on Saturdays from 10 to 5, provides a look at the Caldwells and an archaeological investigation into 18th century life. Admission is free.
