High Point, NC

Furniture Capital of the World

In 1859, when High Point was named after the "highest point" on the North Carolina Railroad, city founders knew that its central location would attract industry and commerce. If you are looking for furniture, this is the place to be! High Point is host to the largest home-furnishings market in the world, almost doubling the size of the population every April and October, with 70,000 visitors.

Enjoy the boom. High Point may just be the one of the best-kept secrets in the Triad. Small enough for community, yet large enough to attract top level industry and jobs - as evidenced by the Piedmont Centre, a 1,100-acre business park on Hwy 68 north of town. High Point may be small, but it plans big. Despite its proximity to the larger cities of Greensboro and Winston-Salem, High Point has a unique identity in the Piedmont Triad. Its small size and location on the fringe of the metropolitian area give it the relaxed air of a small southern town, but the influx of international business people brings a cosmopolitan sophistication and vigor to the city.
