Oak Ridge Real Estate

Oak Ridge is a favorite community for families in the Piedmont Triad area. It provides a quiet, countryside feel while still being close to multiple cities. Until the late 1990s, the area was primarily rural farmland and has seen rapid growth since its incorporation as a town in 1998.

A popular historic destination in Oak Ridge is the Old Mill of Guilford. The Mill was founded in 1767 to grind grain for early settlers and was seized by General Cornwallis in 1781 to operate for his soldiers. After 240 years, it is still fully operational so you can purchase one of the many pancake, muffin, cookie and biscuit mixes. Visiting the beautiful red mill is a must do!

Oak Ridge Town Park provides activities for every age group! Residents love how well maintained and beautifully manicured the park is. Explore the walking trails, playgrounds, pavilions, bark park, ball fields, and attend various community events, such as live music. Beyond the town limits, you can find countless options for shopping, dining and entertainment in Greensboro, High Point and Winston Salem.
