Oak Ridge has been home to the storied Oak Ridge Military Academy since 1852. The school has a rich tradition of excellence, and is still in operation today. Other than the military academy, the area was mainly rural farmland until quite recently. However, once the town incorporated in 1998, the population began to grow rather quickly. Many former tobacco farms have been acquired by housing developers and turned into high-end housing.
It’s no wonder why Oak Ridge has picked up steam in the real estate market. The oak groves and mountain views here are spectacular, the weather is mild, and the people are friendly. It has even been called “God’s Country.” In addition to its abundance of natural wonder and small-town friendliness, Oak Ridge couldn’t be more conveniently located. This town of just over 6,000 people is a mere 15 minutes from Kernersville, 30 minutes from Greensboro, and 30 minutes from Winston. Relaxed, rural living and a reasonable commute? What could be better?
