Lake Jeanette was created in the 1940s to provide water for the Cone Mills textile company. The Cone family was very important to Greensboro, as evidence by the many tributes to their name throughout city, such as Moses Cone Hospital and Cone Boulevard. As the textile manufacturing demand decreased, the Cone family began selling and developing land that they had purchased because it was no longer needed for mill expansion. The community of Lake Jeanette was started in the 1990s as a 750-acre lakefront residential community. A 50-foot buffer surrounds the lake and plans were carefully drawn to protect drainage paths and existing wetlands. Residents enjoy spectacular views, a wonderful community and wooded paths.
