Living in High Point, NC
Named after the fact that it was the highest point on the North Carolina Railroad between Goldsboro and Charlotte, the city of High Point was incorporated in 1859. The city saw extensive growth as a center of the furniture industry, earning it the nickname of the Home Furnishings Capital of the World. That tradition continues today, with home furnishings still forming a major part of the local economy and the High Point Market, a biannual furniture convention that has run for more than 100 years.
Slightly more than 105,000 people call High Point home. Residents of High Point apartments can browse the shops of Uptowne High Point, catch an outdoor concert or explore historic architecture in the downtown furniture district.
