Overview of Hickory

Known for its furniture production and rugged natural beauty, the North Carolina Piedmont city of Hickory has a distinct charm. As a high tech center with great dining, the historic city continues to attract new residents.

People looking for apartments for rent in Hickory will find plenty to do in the surrounding foothills, whether they prefer golfing on nationally recognized courses or trekking among the beautiful fall colors of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Living in Hickory, NC

Originally called Hickory Tavern after a log tavern that enjoyed the shade of a nearby hickory tree, the city of Hickory grew from a stagecoach and railroad stop into a major furniture and textile production hub in the 20th century. Today, Hickory’s legacy lives on in the many furniture companies that still define the area, as well as in scenic parts of its downtown.

The city of around 40,000 is now also a defining part of emerging tech industries that include fiber optics and data storage. Residents of Hickory apartments can take advantage of the modern city’s great outdoor surroundings and extensive shopping options, or enjoy a craft beer downtown as they take in its relaxed Southern pace of life.

Hickory Work and Study

Hickory has been the home of acclaimed Lenoir-Rhyne University since 1891, making it a long standing student hub. Hickory students can also enroll in degree programs at Catawba Valley Community College or take classes through Appalachian State University, which operates the Appalachian Center at Hickory.

The furniture business continues to play a big part in the Hickory economy, but recent years have also seen the expansion of high tech industry and manufacturing, with particular significance as a center of fiber optic cable production. Industry leaders Commscope and Corning Cable Systems are both headquartered in Hickory and provide major sources of jobs. The city is also the headquarters of tape manufacturer Shurtape and food distributor Merchants Distributors, which is the largest local employer. Hickory has become a data center hub for companies like Apple, and it still is a furniture manufacturing hub, with plants for companies such as Ethan Allen and the Hickory Chair Furniture Company, which has been operating in the city since 1911.
