If you are looking for something to do this weekend and have not been to the Greensboro Historical Museum, please make an effort to visit. The museum, located downtown at 130 Summit Avenue, documents key aspects of Greensboro's history. The exhibits are very engaging as you walk through rooms that use artifacts to replicate places and events of previous decades and centuries: a Civil War exhibit, an authentic telephone switchboard, a vintage moving picture, a classroom, a drugstore, a display from the sit-ins, Seagrove pottery, and much more. You will leave the property knowing more about O. Henry, Dolley Madison, Governor John Motley Morehead, and other famous locals. Part of the 17,000 square foot museum is the original First Presbyterian Church complete with a stunning stained glass window. Another great feature of the museum is that it is FREE!
