You are sure to find “delight” when visiting Greensboro, a small, historic town, founded in 1781 and famous for its pottery. Mingo Indians were the first residents of the area, which they called Delight, in recognition of its fertile soil and abundant game. The quality of the soils and minerals in the area gave birth to thriving glass, pottery, and coal mining industries. Today, the community has been active developing the Nathanael Greene riverside trail, river access improvements, and an artisan center. A popular stop is a restored log cabin with reproduction Greensboro pottery for sale. Two miles up the road is Glassworks, the site of the first glass-working west of the Mon, dating back to 1805.
