Greensboro was established in 1808 and is known as The Gate City. The nickname came about because of the railroad that once made it a prominent spot between its North-South and East-West routes.

The city is also known more recently for major Civil Rights era movements in the 1960s. The city offers many museums and locations to learn more about Civil Rights.
