History of the Furniture Industry in North Carolina,
1700 to the Present, Program by Dr. Kenneth Zogry
Sunday, April 18, 2010 • 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm
First Baptist Church, 200 E. New York Avenue, Southern Pines, NC
No Admission Charge

For much of the second half of the twentieth century, High Point earned the title of “Furniture Capital of the World.” But the furniture industry in the state is actually more than 300 years old, and this illustrated presentation follows that history from the early eighteenth century to the present.
This program presents a fascinating array of diverse styles and traditions, from early hand-made pieces by English and Scots-Irish cabinetmakers along the coastal plains and eastern piedmont, to the Germanic influences found in the western piedmont; and from the rural folk traditions of the mountains and foothills to modern manufacturing in towns such as Hickory, Thomasville, and High Point.
The work of several prominent makers is also presented, including Thomas Day, the free African American furniture maker and entrepreneur who built a successful business in the late antebellum era.

The First Baptist Church in Southern Pines is located on East New York Avenue between May Street and Ashe Street.
