During the early decades of the 1840s several of Guilford County's wealthier citizens constructed artfully designed estates within a short walk or ride of burgeoning downtown Greensboro.  The finest example of an urban estate with picturesque landscape is the Italianate Blandwood Mansion, designed by A. J. Davis for Governor J. M. Morehead.  Blandwood, The Elms and other large estates circling the one square mile core of Greensboro held numerous outbuildings, including housing for enslaved African-Americans.  Leslie Stewart-Abernathy's urbanization model detailing the processes at urban farmsteads is compared to the political, economic, and social processes occurring at these estates, using Blandwood as the primary case study.
