V ' .6 L1 1 S31 2. 9 2 fm land, Me., and Key XYest. lt is also situated in the heart of the Piedmont sec- 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. VVinslow, Campbell, Farlow, and Wiley were among the first merchants. 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 barrels. 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 annually. It also manufactures paints, bed springs, wheels, iron beds, organs, coffins, engines, roller Hour, buggies, street cars and possesses silk mills, cotton mills, and hosiery mills. 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 87

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- 86
