Welcome to the Gate City!
Hustle and Bustle
Explore another time—experience our city’s history first hand
What was it like to live in the early 1900s? Come learn about the time when Greensboro got its nickname. Imagine the era when the railroad made our town a gateway to the rest of the country as you become an operator at the local telephone exchange, or step up to a drugstore counter and measure out the elements for a prescription. Or, perhaps you would prefer to write on a school slate, try to lift a fire bucket, or laugh at a silent film. Whatever your tastes, we have something to delight you.
Welcome to the Gate City! invites you to sample Greensboro’s roots, and you’ll leave longing to come back for another helping.
