Looking for a unique perspective on American heritage? Spend a day at the Greensboro Historical Museum. Here you can trace the rich history of this vibrant Southern city and the dramatic role it has played in writing the story of America, right up to the present day. “Voices of a City: Greensboro North Carolina” earned national recognition for its storytelling techniques. You can’t miss the drama of the American Revolution, Underground Railroad and modern Civil Rights movement. And you won’t want to miss the heroism of First Lady Dolley Madison or United 93 flight attendant Sandy Bradshaw. Other galleries feature 1900s Greensboro, Jugtown Pottery, Civil War firearms and vintage cars.
