Some History of Hickory, NC (from wikipedia)
In the 1850s, under a huge hickory tree, Henry Robinson built a tavern of logs. The city of “Hickory Tavern” co-founded by “Dolph” Shuford, was established in 1863, and the name was eventually changed to the city of Hickory in 1873.
The first train operated in the city of “Hickory Tavern” in 1859. The first lot was sold to Henry Link for $45.00 in 1858. His house is now known as “The 1859 Cafe,” a restaurant (closed in 2011). The community of Hickory was the first for many things in North Carolina, including the council-manager form of government it adopted in 1913. Hickory was also one of the first towns to install electric lights in 1888 and a complete sewage system in 1904.
In 1868, Dr. Jeremiah Ingold, pastor of the German Reformed Grace Charge, established Hickory’s first school, the Free Academy.
In 1891, Lenoir–Rhyne University (then Highland Academy) was founded by four Lutheran pastors with 12 initial students.
Hickory is home to one of the oldest furniture manufacturers in the United States that is still located and operated on the original site. Hickory White, formerly known as Hickory Manufacturing Company, was built in 1902 and has been in continuous operation ever since. During World War II, the factory made ammunition boxes for the U.S. military instead of furniture. — read more at wikipedia
