Excerpt from Progressive Greensboro, the Gate City of North Carolina, Vol. 1

Greensboro has an elevation of 833 feet above tide water, and the country is sufficiently rolling to afford a natural drainage, so that stagnant water is never seen in the gutters. This is supplemented by a complete and modern system of drainage, which materially conduces to healthfulness.

Greensboro is the center and gateway of the far-famed Piedmont region, which lies to the south of and is sheltered by the Blue Ridge and Sauratown ranges of mountains, which divide Virginia from North Carolina, and to the east of the extension of the same Blue Ridge range which separates the state from Tennessee, having thus a southern and eastern exposure to the sun, thus giving to the Piedmont counties all the blessings and advantages which combine to make up almost a perfect climate. Greensboro is situated 515 miles distant from New York, 413 miles from Philadelphia, 81 miles from Raleigh, 93 miles from Charlotte, 319 miles from Baltimore, 656 miles from Boston, 981 miles from Chicago, 687 miles from Cincinnati, 555 miles from Jacksonville, 319 miles from Knoxville, 885 miles from New Orleans, 255 miles from Norfolk, 189 miles from Richmond, 938 miles from St. Louis, 288 miles from Washington, and 364 miles from Savannah, with all of which she has direct and constant railroad connection.

Greensboro is in the heart of a very fertile agricultural region, and Guilford County contains large quantities of timber, such as white, black, red, Spanish, post, chestnut and water oaks, hickory, yellow and white poplar, gum, dogwood, persimmon, and some walnut.

The climate of Greensboro leaves but little to be desired.
