History of Sunset Hills

In 1922, developer A.K. Moore acquired a 212-acre tract of land that encompassed rolling and wooded terrain north of Walker Avenue west of Greensboro that extended out to what is now known as Friendly Avenue. The property had a unique location since it serves as the gateway to downtown Greensboro. The land extended down West Market Street in the form of a grand parkway nearly 100 feet wide to serve as the focus for the new neighborhood. A total of 10 acres was devoted to the landscaped avenue that featured the largest lots in the neighborhood. 

12 acres of land were set aside on a natural north-south axis for a "greenway" park along a stream that featured wading pools, sand boxes and swing sets. The remaining portions of the neighborhood were laid off in a casual grid pattern that maximized efficient rectangular lots. 

Today it rests in the heart of the city with over 1,500 residents, a dozen churches, and several samplings of fine restaurants.
