Corner Of Washington St. and Centennial St.

Guilford General Hospital - 2:00

History of Washington Street - 1:40

This is where life begins. First of all, at one time Washington St. went all the way over to the [train] depot. When they put Centennial St. here, all of a sudden, it became the dividing line between the races. We were told 'don't go on the other side of Centennial St.' I'm sure they were [told the same about] over here. I have not found one thing in my research that says what happened.
