Features & Extras of 700 Chestnut Street, Greensboro, NC 27405 - Aycock Historic District
The Charles B. Aycock Historic District is just north of downtown Greensboro and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The neighborhood takes pride in it's friendly atmosphere, it's strong sense of community & it's place in Greensboro's history. Aycock has a rich architectural heritage, with most homes dating from the early 20th century. With the exception of a few apartment units that were grandfathered in, historical standards are in place for all new & existing structures to secure the authenticity of the community's character. There are few neighborhoods in Greensboro that can boast about their walkability, their proximity to downtown and all that has to offer and a beautiful canopy of trees...some over a hundred years old...that help to shade the children playing outside and the multitude of joggers, bicyclists and dog walkers.
Dunleith Community Garden
A short stroll up Chestnut Street is the Community Vegetable Garden. This exciting endeavor allows residents to grow fresh produce, take part in lessons concerning all things growing and to enjoy neighborhood festivities. It also attracts school outings so children can learn more about healthy choices and how our food grows.
For those who prefer their veggies already harvested & perhaps some fresh baked breads and pastries, the Greensboro Farmer's Curb Market is a short walk away on Yanceyville Street. The origins of this market date back to 1874, making it one of the oldest markets in NC.
From our neighbors:
“I was born in the Aycock Historical neighborhood and have lived here for the better part of my life. The charm of the houses and the friendliness of the neighbors touch my heart and have kept me firmly rooted here. Porch sitting has become a lost art in most communities, but here it is a way of life.”
- Anne Finn, Hendrix Street
“The thing I like most about the neighborhood are the many 'FEELS'...not only the historic feel, but also the easy-going feel, the close-knit feel, the family feel. The neighbors know each other's names, their kid's names and their dog's names. And while we may not talk face-to-face every day if I needed anything, one phone call would have at least a handful of neighbors there in a flash. It's like the iconic neighborhoods in old movies.”
