High Point, NC

High Point

Founded in 1859, High Point was named for being the highest point on the North Carolina Railroad between Goldsboro and Charlotte. Our forefathers capitalized on the city’s central location in the state appealing to industry and commerce that remains prosperous to this day. High Point is home to a variety of events that draw visitors from across the globe, including the High Point Market, the world’s largest furnishings industry tradeshow. Not only is High Point a great place to visit, but also a great place to call home. Just an hour from the mountains and three hours from the coast, High Point’s central location in the Piedmont is easy living centered between our sister cities of Greensboro and Winston-Salem.
