Lake Oconee's Hometown
Historic Downtown Greensboro is located just north of Interstate 20 halfway between Augusta and Atlanta and only minutes from the shores of beautiful Lake Oconee.
Greensboro was founded in 1786 and named for Georgia's Revolutionary War hero, Nathaneal Greene. The town, touched by King Cotton, the Civil War, the boll weevil and the Great Depression always forged new beginnings.
Today the historic shopping district features regionally known restaurants, antiques, art galleries, home decor and gift shops. Shoppers search for the perfect antique or find handcrafted art created by Georgia artisans, all in a beautifully restored downtown where old-fashioned service isn't so old-fashioned after all!
Greensboro is known for its proactive downtown development efforts. The city is recognized as a National Main Street and a Georgia Main Street Community.
