The Largest Chicken House

Record #:
T. O. Minton owns Champion Poultry Farms which is located near North Wilkesboro in Wilkes County. It is the largest in the South, and perhaps in the nation. He began in 1923 with 100 chickens and today has over 70,000. Recently a new chicken house was built which was 800 feet long and possibly the longest building in the state.
