Hickory, located in Catawba County, is featured in Our State Magazine's Tar Heel Town of the Month section. It is a town and county full of history. For example, at the height of World War II Hickory was the site of a large polio outbreak. Yet, in June, citizens rallied to build a hospital in fifty-four hours to treat the victims. Items to see on a visit include Hickory Motor Speedway, Hickory Furniture Mart, Hickory Crawdads minor league baseball team, Union Square, and the Catawba Science Center/Hickory Museum of Art.
