Abstract:
Since 2003, Alleghany County has experienced an economic downturn, and over 2,000 jobs have been lost in the rural area. To spur the economy, county officials are planning to build a $10 million teapot museum in Sparta. Projections from a national firm hired to evaluate the museum's prospects are that the museum would attract 61,000 people annually, add $7.5 million in tourist revenue, and increase local sales and occupancy taxes by $250,000. The schedule for the opening of 300,000-square-foot-building is 2008.

Abstract:
Montgomery County is located at the exact center of North Carolina. Five years ago the county's economy had taken a downturn with the decline of the textile industry and the loss of two long-standing manufacturers. Still, several mainstays in manufacturing (Capel Rugs), lumber (Jordan Lumber and Supply, Inc.), and banking (Fidelity Bank) remain strong. Coulthard discusses how industry, tourism, high-end housing, and strong ties with Montgomery Community College are helping lead the way to an improving county economy.
