In North Carolina's cities (Charlotte, Greensboro, Raleigh, Durham, Winston-Salem, etc.), which neighborhoods would you describe as "old money" or prestigious? For example, neighborhoods that date back to the early 20th century or the Gilded Age, or neighborhoods with old tobacco wealth, etc. Are there any specific examples you can think of?

In addition to Hope Valley, I would also put Forest Hills in Durham as well.

They aren't as well known as the neighborhoods cited in NC's relatively larger cities, but many of the smaller legacy towns in NC (that have been around multiple centuries and were built around textiles, tobacco, and furniture) have their own "old money" neighborhoods.

Yeah I was going to say something like this. Even in now economically depressed towns like Rocky Mount, Goldsboro, Kinston, Lumberton, etc. you can see the very wealthy "Old Money" sections of the towns that are still around from those times.
