The Town That Chairs Built

Record #:
The presence of the North Carolina Railway in Davidson spurred the development of the Thomasville Chair Company, the county's largest industry. John W. Thomas, a Whig and advocate of internal improvements, bought land and founded a store and sawmill in the county in 1852. Thomasville went through various phases of industrial development, including tobacco and mining.
