Greensboro

Greensboro is a small town in Hale County, Alabama. Named in honor of American Revolutionary War general Nathanael Greene, this town is home to numerous sites of historical importance, such as Glencairn, the Greensboro Historic District, Magnolia Grove, the McGehee-Stringfellow House, Millwood, and the Payne House. Magnolia Hall is well worth a visit, as well as Glencairn, for their old-fashioned Greek revival architecture. Of course, the history of the region is not all beautiful architecture, so make sure to check out the Safe House Black History Museum to see the darker side of the region's past. Of course, there are also numerous nearby parks, streams, rivers, and forests where you can go hiking, biking, swimming, or picnicking, such as Carey Tidmore Lake and John Jays Lake.
