The ground where the Battle for Guilford Courthouse was waged, this national military park is a solemn commemoration of the soldiers and militia who valiantly braved the Southern Campaign of the American Revolution. Back during the Revolutionary War, the battle for Guilford Courthouse was fought, with Major General Nathanael Greene and his men trying to defend the land. Complete with a tapestry of exhibits, monuments and dense forests, the Guilford Courthouse National Military Park is truly an indelible chapter marking the pages of America's history.
The goal and lasting mission of the International Civil Rights Center and Museum is to educate future generations and also not let anyone forget Greensboro's as well as the nation's struggle for Civil Rights. Everything that began with the sit-in protest of the Woolworth-lunch counter 1960 by four young North Carolina A&T State College students and every battle in-between is chronicled inside these walls. This is truly an inspiring monument to chronicling the history of the Civil Rights Movement.

It is one of the oldest standing Italianate structures in all of the United States. Tours are early morning and afternoons from Tuesday through Sunday.
