The Hub of High Point : Southern Railway Passenger Station and Depot Square

The crossroads community which grew around the intersection of the plank road connecting Fayetteville to Salem and a new railroad connecting Goldsboro to Charlotte became the hub of inns and general stores catering to the passing stage and rail traffic. Other businesses also sprung-up at the crossroads so that by 1859, a small village incorporated into the Town of High Point. Images included in this exhibit show High Point's downtown developing around the railroad and the passenger depot.

These photographs were displayed at the High Point Public Library in conjunction with the 2016 Community Read.
