In 1808, Greensborough (as was the spelling prior to 1895) was planned around a central courthouse square to succeed the nearby town ofGuilford Court House as the county seat. This act moved the county courts closer to the geographical center of the county, a location more easily reached by the majority of the county's citizens.
Greensboro is part of a metropolitan area locally called the Triad, which encompasses three major cities (Greensboro, High Point, and Winston-Salem), as well as many smaller cities and towns.
