“College Hill is a neighborhood with a turn-of-the-century appearance,
a pedestrian place with the amenities of convenience, architectural charm, human scale and a sense of character.”
From the College Hill Concept Plan,
approved by the Greensboro City Council in 1978
College Hill, located immediately west of downtown Greensboro south of West Market Street, has the distinctions of being Greensboro’s first neighborhood and first historic district. This small area was initially built out as a neighborhood beginning in the 1890s, but it also includes homes dating back to the 1840s.
The neighborhood is roughly bounded by West Market Street to the north, UNCG to the west, the railroad tracks to the south and the future Downtown Greenway to the east. Here is a map showing College Hill’s boundaries and properties (PDF).
