Greensboro Historical Museum & Blandwood Mansion Greensboro has a number of excellent museums and historical sites - the Greensboro Historical Museum is located in several historic buildings as described in the first quote below - inside are permanent and rotating exhibits - a walking exhibit of various types of walk-in stores, school room, and past events is excellent; there are also dedications to two natives of the town/area, i.e. Dolley Madison & O.Henry (her portrait & his outside statue shown below; the other pics illustrate many of the inside exhibits). John Motley Morehead is buried in the First Presbyterian Church cemetery (grave shown below) - he is arguably one of the most influential of North Carolina governors - his bust is in the Old State Capitol Building (see my Raleigh travelogue, if interested) - quoted below a brief summary of his life; he lived at the Blandwood Mansion (see third quote and last pic) which is now in downtown Greensboro and was saved from destruction in the early 1960s - we did a tour last year which was well done w/ an excellent young guide - Morehead's office is off to the side of the main building, and I was amazed at how many state & railroad business issues and decisions occurred there in the pre-Civil War period. Dave P.S. the Morehead Planetarium in Chapel Hill (discussed in my Raleigh travelogue) is named after him. . .
