Nathanael GREENe Keeping Watch Over GREENe Street, downtown GREENsboro

Still looking out for us after all these years....

Check out my new Downtown Greensboro set.

We've also just started a new Flickr group called "Downtown Greensboro" to which any one with a Flickr account can add pictures of our downtown. Please contribute. If you have a Flickr account you can do a group search on "Downtown Greensboro" and there you will find it! Join up and contribute!

This group is for pictures taken of or from downtown Greensboro, NC. I am defining downtown as bordered by Lee Street on the south, Martin Luther King and King street on the southeast, Spring Street and Freeman Mill on the west, Fisher and Murrow on the north, and Murrow on the west. Maybe there is a better definition.

Did you happen to notice the plaque that indicates who the monument is really a tribute to. General Greene may well be atop but the real monument is a tribute to the Bobblehead.

Hello, I am the President of the Gen. Nathanael Greene Homestead, the home Nathanael built in 1770 and hoped to be his home until old age, of course we know that this did not occur. The home is now a museum as well as a National Historic Landmark. We are open 7 months out of the year and conduct a multitude of educational programs. When the Homestead was sold out of the family, the ancient barn was torn down, we are attempting to build a replica on our remaining 11 acres for use as a classroom, and for special events. We are attempting to raise funds for this, any help you can provide by sharing our information is greatly appreciated.

Thank you
