I love the piedmont of North Carolina and I thought I would share what you will see here if you never been to this part of North Carolina.

Old Tobacco Barn



Tobacco Fields go for miles and still a major cash crop for local farmers.



17 and 18 century homes located in High Point




Black Smith Building


Rolling Country Side Near Cool Springs, North Carolina



Beautiful Barns on Highway 64




Southern Historic Homes in Mocksville, North Carolina



I saw this one and it was for sale. It has beautiful entrance brick posts at beginning of the driveway with lantern style lights on the posts.

What lovely pictures. Thanks for posting them. I enjoyed taking a look into the piedmont area. I now live in the piedmont and like you, I see some really great areas here.

I saw this home in Mocksville area and thought it had some attitude.



very cute



The windows of this home caught my eye and it also had a for sale sign in the yard.



Here a photo of home I am in process of flipping to put on the market.
Excuse the look I am replacing the storm windows and I took the shudders off before painting the home



I love the large deck with dog run and it has a hot tub



I assume the previous owner worked from home this work shed has two offices and plenty of storage.



This is the view of the back yard of this home that sits on acre very serene.

You take wonderful pictures. Have you considered a career as a post card photographier?

Thank you that was too kind of comment.
I never thought about it but there is lack of post cards of the piedmont.

I was in Greensboro Saturday and was amazed on how busy the downtown was. They have done excellent job of vitalizing a historic downtown and leaving it as that. Few classic neon lights, flower pots hanging off the street lamps.

Here is a photo in downtown Greensboro (also known as Greensborough original spelling) the original Woolworth building where the first sit in too place A & T university students.


Here is some photos of the best city park I have seen in a downtown area
Greensboro Cienter City Park.
