I have recently moved into the O Henry Oaks neighborhood and was impressed by the modern/ mid-century modern architecture. Any insight as to how the neighborhood was started?

An article on the development of the O'Henry Oaks neighborhood was printed in the December 21st 1954 issue of the News and Record. The tract was part of land owned by Cone Mills. The O. Henry Oaks neighborhood was the largest planned mid-century era community*in Greensboro! It was developed by Kavanaugh-Smith and Company. The neighborhood was to ultimately have 700 homes with a shopping center and a school.
