Abstract: Have you ever wondered what a favorite downtown spot was twenty-five, fifty, or even one hundred years ago? Six museum studies students at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro have spent the last year-and-a-half trying to figure out just that. They have been poring through Greensboro’s city directories, deeds, census records, photographs, fire insurance maps, and classified ads, as well as examining the structures themselves and conducting oral interviews.
