Greensboro is a city in the U.S. state of North Carolina.
It is the third-largest city, by population, in North Carolina and the largest city in Guilford County
and the surrounding Piedmont Triad metropolitan region.
As of the 2000 census, Greensboro was home to 223,891 residents. Its estimated 2007 population was 244,610.
The city is located at the intersection of two major interstate highways (I-85 and I-40) in the
Piedmont ("foot of the mountains") region of central North Carolina.
In 1808, Greensborough (as was the spelling prior to 1895) was planned around a central courthouse
square to succeed the nearby town of Guilford Court House as the county seat.
This act moved the county courts closer to the geographical center of the county,
a location more easily reached by the majority of the county's citizens.
In 2003, the previous Greensboro - Winston-Salem - High Point metropolitan statistical area (MSA)
was re-defined by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget, resulting in the formation of the
Greensboro-High Point MSA and the Winston-Salem MSA.
The 2006 population estimate for the Greensboro-High Point MSA was 685,378.
The Greensboro - Winston-Salem - High Point combined statistical area (CSA), popularly referred to as
the Piedmont Triad, had an estimated population of 1,513,576 in 2006 making it the 30th
largest metropolitan area in the USA. Source: US Bureau of the Census, Released April 2007
