Designated in 2008 as an All-America City, we are proud of what we can offer retirees moving to our beautiful town. Located in the northern section of NC just outside of the metro of Greensboro, Reidsville is the best of both worlds. It’s a small city with big attributes.

Quality of life is important. Reidsville prides itself on recreation and art in our community. Lake Reidsville is a 750-acre lake offering hiking, boating, water skiing, disc golf and camping. Walking trails are also located at the lake and greenways throughout Reidsville, including a walking trail in the Downtown Historic District. Golfing is also a big sport with 10 courses located in the county. Downtown Reidsville also boasts Market Square. This outdoor amphitheater hosts numerous free activities from May through October.

Reidsville’s historic downtown is a wonderful place to shop, have a great meal and gather! There are specialty restaurants and shopping. Reidsville also hosts a local farmer’s market every May through October. Local farmers, bakers, artisans and more set up and sell fresh produce, fruits, baked goods, eggs, cheese, jams, jellies, flowers and so much more. Our downtown also has many beautiful historic homes. Listed on the National Register of Historic Homes, The Penn House is owned and operated by the City of Reidsville. The home is used as a venue for weddings, special events, business meetings and more. It is just one of the many attributes in Reidsville that brings people to the area.

Seniors and healthcare are very important to our community. Reidsville’s Senior Center is a Center of Excellence, one of the few in the state with that designation. Construction began on a brand new, state-of-the-art $5 million Senior Center. Completion of the center is expected in 2016. The new center will also house an adult daycare, one of the first senior centers in the state to offer this service. Reidsville’s hospital, Annie Penn, was bought out several years ago by Cone Health System. This has allowed our city to grow greatly in the number of doctors and services offered. If needs cannot be met locally, then renowned health institutes such as Duke, Baptist and Chapel Hill are just down the road.

Volunteer opportunities abound in our community along with the ability to stay active in learning through many varied classes at Rockingham Community College. The cost of living is another great attribute with the average three-bedroom home at $98,000. It’s just one of the many reasons we: Live Simply. Think Big.
