On April 20, 2013, Preservation Greensboro will present “The Secrets of College Hill.” Learn about the history and architecture of the historic College Hill neighborhood. As one of the Gate City’s oldest neighborhoods, College Hill features some of the oldest homes in Greensboro, but its story does not end there. In the 1970s the area was designated a slum and rehabilitation plans pondered wholesale demolition. A plucky group of citizens banded together and offered another plan of action – creation of Greensboro’s first historic district. This event is FREE. Location TBA.
Our website is a resource for College Hill residents and anyone interested in our neighborhood and historic district. The blog on our home page or our welcome page are places to start.

Isn’t There Anything to Do Around Here?
No, not for the foreseeable future. But eventually things will return to normal, and when they do, check the Local Events page for links to major events, major venues, university event calendars and Greensboro’s busy local arts scene (much of which happens downtown).
