You will find the World?s Largest Chest of Drawers in High Point, North Carolina as High Point town?s landmark and symbol of being the "Home Furnishings Capital of the World." It used to be 20 feet tall when it was first built in the 1920s to be an office for the local Bureau of Information. The 2 huge socks that dangle from one of the drawers serve as a symbol of yet another booming industry in city, the hosiery business.
In 1995, the building was renovated and its fa?ade was again designed to be a 38 feet high replica of a Goddard-Townsend chest. Today, the chest drawer building houses the High Point Jaycees. Inside the lobby, visitors can see the exact model chest drawer that served as the building?s inspiration.
