One of Winston-Salem’s oldest neighborhoods, Ardmore is a beautiful and popular place to live.

Welcome to Ardmore

This historic neighborhood (the largest historic district in the city, in fact) was established in the early 1900s as a suburb of Winston-Salem. At the time, Winston-Salem was the largest city in the state of North Carolina, and so the economy was booming here. 

Ardmore is known for its charming homes and tree-lined streets. It is in between both major hospitals and close to shopping areas like Thruway, with easy access to downtown, too. With more than 2,000 homes, it’s a large neighborhood. Miller Park is located in the heart of Ardmore, making the neighborhood a great location to walk or run. 

We love that it is easy to build relationships just walking the streets and greeting people who are working in their yards or on their porch.  It is an active place that has become our point of connection through recreation & community.

Annual Traditions in Ardmore

Ardmore is full of personality. Don’t miss these annual traditions!

  • Ardmore Art Walk – each fall, artists set up in the front yards of Ardmore homes to sell their creations
  • Ardmore RAH! – the Race Against Hunger (RAH!) is a fundraiser for the local food bank each fall
  • Halloween Decorations – Ardmore is known for the best overall Halloween decorations in the city (so expect a LOT of trick-or-treaters if you live here!)

I love that I can walk out my door and wave to people passing by on foot, or watering their gardens, or out with their kids. I am so thankful for how kind the community feels, how there is garnered support, how there are inter-generational homes & people. I enjoy local businesses as well as a neighborhood pool and churches.
