Welcome to High Point
Back in 1859 a small town was born, located on the highest point along the North Carolina Railroad which stretched from Goldsboro to Charlotte. Being at the “high point” on this railroad line, High Point was born!
Today, the population of High Point is a little over 110,000 and it sits in four different counties- Guilford (our county seat), Davidson, Forsyth and Randolph. High Point is in the Piedmont region of North Carolina, at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains.
We definitely get the best of both worlds being 1-1/2-hours from the mountains and 3-hours from the coast! Our seasons are distinct with spring, summer, fall, and mild winters. But if you are a snow lover, don't get discouraged, we do occasionally get a big snow or ice storm for a well deserved snow day!
High Point, Greensboro and Winston-Salem make up a triangle known as the Triad. It is one of the fastest growing areas in North Carolina. They are all wonderful cities, yet High Point has one advantage over the other two when it comes to Real Estate. In High Point, you get more “bang for your buck” when buying a house. Our housing prices on average are lower which makes us a fantastic choice when evaluating where to live. You pay less for your home and are only 20 minutes away from Greensboro and Winston Salem and one hour from Raleigh and Charlotte. Basically, a no brainer where to buy.
"Furniture Capital of the World"
You may have heard, High Point is known as the “Furniture Capital of the World” and, we are home to the Largest Chest of Drawers! In 1909, the City of High Point hosted its first furniture market. The High Point Market (as it is known today) is the largest home furnishings industry trade show in the world. There are over 12 million square feet of showroom space spread across almost 200 buildings. The market holds two shows every year, one in April and one in October, which bring in around 80,000 attendees from over 100 countries. It is a huge economic bolster to our community, studies have shown that Market contributes $5.4 billion to the area’s economy.
High Point On the Move
Through the years, High Point has experienced its ups and downs economically, like any other small city. But today, through the resurgence of local manufacturing, the feasibility for large companies to relocate to the Triad, the growth of High Point University and now the movement for revitalization of our downtown area, including the construction of our new multi-use stadium, High Point is the place to be!
