It is unlikely that the German, Quaker, and Scotch-Irish immigrants who established the town's first boundaries could have ever seen the rapid technological advances or cultural and developmental developments that molded our city. With a rich history since its founding in the early 1800s, Greensboro is located in the heart of North Carolina. Cotton mills and textiles helped Greensboro get its start; followed by influences of the railroad which drew tobacco, lumber, and furniture industries to town. Cone Mills, Blue Bell, Lorillard Tobacco, and Western Electric were early leaders in business development in Greensboro.
Quakers founded Guilford College and Methodists founded Greensboro College which are only two of the many colleges and universities that the city boasts and are still thriving today. Churches and education have helped build Greensboro's purpose and community helping to construct social, economic, and political structures that support this beautiful city. The University of North Carolina at Greensboro, A&T State University help round out over a dozen of the higher education opportunities in town.
