This weekend is Preservation Greensboro's Third Annual Tour of Historic Homes and Gardens. This year's neighborhood is College Hill, Greensboro's first neighborhood and home to some of our city's oldest homes. College Hill was settled in the 1840's around the time that Greensboro College opened. The houses, many of which were built in the early 1900's, haven't changed much over the past 100 years. Here and here are examples of the single family dwellings. The homes on show are a larger and more elegant, but these smaller homes are equally cozy.
The above view was taken on South Mendenhall, not too far from the Troy Bumpass Home and beside Greensboro College. Read Preservation Greensboro's Facebook page (here) and you will be running to buy a ticket for the tour of homes. The weathermen say the weather will be perfect. While photography is not allowed inside the homes, we'll be there taking photos from the street. Hope to see you there!
