Greensboro. Vol. II: NeighborhoodsFripp, Gayle Hicks, Greensboro. Vol. II: Neighborhoods: Here are pictures, with long captions, of homes and churches from older neighborhoods. The book is arranged by time periods.

An Inventory of Historic Architecture, Greensboro, NC: This 1976 publication is geographically arranged, with its index on pages  23-25. A map in the back shows the locations of buildings in the book.

If the building was outside the city limits at the time it was written, look at:

Graybeal, Kate, Historic Architecture Inventory, Guilford County, North Carolina: This book is so large that it has to be kept on top of the low shelves in the NC section; it's too big to fit on the shelves. It includes a color picture of each building, with brief information. There is an index and the arrangement is geographical.

Smith, H. McKelden, Architectural Resources: An Inventory of Historic Architecture: Published in 1979, this book is indexed and includes maps.
