Real Estate Agent with Beth Spradley, LLC 2104508

Real Estate in Greensboro Alabama- The Life In Alabama Series Want to live in the same hometown as Forrest Gump?  Well, you can. Greenbow, Alabama does not exist, but it has been said Greensboro and its downtown square were the inspiration for Greenbow

Searching for Homes in Greensboro is tough.  You might want to use an agent with access to both the West Alabama and Birmingham databases, which Capital Real Estate is able to provide.

Greensboro is in an area known as the Black Belt, named for the color of the rich soil.  It is an agricultural and rural area.  And, it didn't need Forrest to make it historic, although he would be welcomed with a big glass of sweet tea.  Greensboro has plenty of history and historic homes of its own.
