Today starts a new round of ABC Wednesday (Round 11) and a faithful reader has convinced us to feature A-Z neighborhoods of Greensboro.
Well, surprise.... "A" is for "Adams Farm." Adams Farm is a 728-acre, planned community between Wendover Avenue and High Point Road, near Jamestown. The community has many amenities, including a pool with an active swim team, a tennis club, a 17 acre pond, and five miles of walking trails. Adams Farm was developed in the late 1980's- early 1990's with houses still being added late in the 1990's. Naming consultants were brought in to help name the 20- plus neighborhoods and the streets within the given neighborhoods to help forge their identities- Country Walk, Autumn Woods, Revere's Run (as in Paul), Cedar Valley to name a few . When orignially built, neighborhoods had slightly different characteristics (brick veneer, hardy plank, combination; apartment complexes; higher-end/first homes), but with equal access to amenities. As they move into their their decade, variability has increased somewhat in neighborhoods as people paint their homes in colors different from the original neutral palate, as landscaping matures, and other features are added. However, the community has an active homeowner's association and sense of community remains strong.
The houses in the above photo are located in Poplar Hill Court, on the Hilltop Road side of Adams Farm.
