Greensboro was established around 1808. It was initially spelled Greensborough. The town was founded to take over from another nearby town, Guilford Court House, as the county seat, so that the county courts are located nearer the geographical center of the county. It has grown tremendously since those "early days".

Greensboro is located in the undulating terrain of North Corolina's Piedmont, with the Blue Ridge mountains and the Great Smoky mountains to the west, and the Atlantic Ocean to the east. Over half the city's population are whites, with African Americans making up some 37% of the population. It also has a significant Vietnamese community who settled in Greensboro since their arrival in the late 1970's as refugees.
