Greensboro owes the 750-acre Lake Jeanette community to the Cone family who began constructing the lake in 1940 to help meet the water needs for their denim mills.* The Eastern Shores community, one of many on Lake Jeanette, opened in 1994. The above house is located in the exclusive, gated estates, a high-end community on the eastern part of the lake. The giant, brick colonial house is on the top of the hill at the end of Eastern Shores Drive.
Today is ABC Wednesday and this round,** we're featuring neighborhoods of Greensboro. "E" is for Eastern Shores, a neighborhood in Lake Jeanette. Eastern Shores is located just off the northernmost part of Elm Street. The community is landscaped beautifully. Walking trails and boat docks are found throughout the neighborhoods and help contribute to the sense of community.
