Welcome to the Newto News for March of 2024. My name is Zack Cockfield, and my team and I created Newtomedia as a way for visitors or new residents to get information about a city. Each month we bring together resources that will update you on the history, amenities, culture, future opportunities and all other things inside a city that make it unique. We also hope to be a resource for connecting you with people and businesses that can help you live a better life. If you find our efforts useful, please click on the links to get more information!

High Point, North Carolina was founded in 1859 and quickly became known as the “Furniture Capital of the World” due to its thriving furniture manufacturing industry. The city’s location at the intersection of multiple major railroad lines made it a key transportation hub, leading to rapid growth and prosperity. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, High Point experienced a boom in population and economic development as more furniture factories opened and the city became a major player in the global furniture market. High Point also became known for its annual furniture trade shows, which attracted buyers and sellers from around the world. Despite facing challenges such as economic downturns and competition from overseas manufacturers, High Point has continued to be a hub for furniture production and innovation. Today, the city remains an important center for the furniture industry and is home to a diverse community with a strong sense of pride in its history and heritage.
