North Main Street : High Point's Commercial Heartland

The factory district, located south of the railroad tracks, was the economic engine that drove High Point's growth. Above the tracks, on North Main Street, was a showcase of the city's economic prosperity. Shops, banks, offices, restaurants, hotels and movie palaces filled the first three blocks. Even with growing suburbs pulling more residents outside of the city center, North Main Street was High Point's commercial district for more than half a century.
