Downtown revitalization is a major project for many cities. In May 1988, Burlington began to participate in the North Carolina Main Street Program in order to revitalize its downtown area.
The city of Burlington began as the North Carolina Railroad’s hub for building, repairing and maintaining its trains and tracks. Over the years, the area became a leader in the textile industry but by the mid-1970s, most of the sites shut down. With the help of LabCorp, one of the world’s largest medical testing companies, Burlington’s population and downtown is thriving once again.
