Rich history served fresh daily
Local people making extraordinary connections: just another day in Greensboro
There is nothing better than sharing the pleasures of life with other people. At the Greensboro Historical Museum we will introduce you to Greensboro’s native sons and daughters, and show you how they cooked up great things in our region, our nation, our past and our future.
Our downtown facility, at 130 Summit Avenue, features a National Historic Register Building, and the historic first home of First Presbyterian Church. Walk though the historic church cemetery and tour the restored Francis McNairy House. Then, step inside the main building to taste more of history as it was meant to be: rich, fresh and relevant.
Our suburban campus, the David and Rachel Caldwell Historical Center, at 3211 West Cornwallis Drive, is on the site of the Caldwell’s colonial era farm and academy. On the menu is a collection of archeological artifacts gleaned from the home and farm grounds. View fragments of pottery and metal that, when whole, graced the table of two of the region’s most influential citizens, and be inspired to leave your own mark on Greensboro and its future.
