tion, a district noted for fine farms, fertile soil and good roads.
The first train passed through about 1855. VVhen High Point first received
its name, people throughout the whole State ridiculed and whenever a small in-
significant place was reached by a train, the people would put their heads out of
the windows of the cars and holler, "All aboard for High Point." In 1900 only
twelve passenger trains passed through daily, today there are about twenty-four
that arrive and depart each day.
Undaunted however, High Point grew and before so very many years, a
Methodist College was built on the lot opposite the present station. This school
flourished a while, then in a few years, Dr. B. Richardson and May Lynch
established a school of military training, which was under their direction for
three years, after which it was sold into the hands of Mr. NVilliam Blair, now a
resident of lrVinston-Salem. Thus the foundation for our excellent schools was
begun. Now we have four public school buildings which are, the Main Street,
Elm Street, Grimes Street and Park Street Schools.

In the late seventies, a spoke and handle factory was established by Mr.
William Snow, which flourished for a long time, and later developed into the
shuttle factory, which has been such a success under the auspices of Mr. J. El-
wood Cox. About this time an old grist mill stood where the Quaker Church
now is and a cotton mill stood down on what is now VVillowbrook Street.
The first factory was built in 1855 by Barnett Payne for manufacturing
The furniture business began in 1892 and in a comparatively short time
it built up a large business, which challenged the admiration of larger markets in
all sections of the country. Today High Point ranks next to Grand Rapids,
Mich., and is frequently called "The Grand Rapids of the South." It began in
a small way and without the aid of outsiders. It rejoices today in the possession
of four score factories of various characters, doing a business of over 38,000,000
It also manufactures paints, bed springs, wheels, iron beds, organs, coffins,
engines, roller Hour, buggies, street cars and possesses silk mills, cotton mills, and
In the early days of its history, High Point had few public buildings.
Among the first built were the jarrell and Hunt Hotels, that were situated where

BCUT sixty years ago, High Point was just a little railroad station, having
a population of about three hundred. It derived its name from the fact
that it was the highest point on the old North Carolina Railroad between
Charlotte and Goldsboro. After the war this road was sold on account of debt
and then became known as the Richmond and Danville Road. Later it was sold
to the Southern, and now High Point is on the main line, being midway between
six great points: Xllashington and Atlanta, New York and jacksonville, Port-
