State approves historical marker for High Point Market

Sign to be installed near IHFC on S. Main St.

North Carolina has officially recognized the High Point Market as an event of statewide historical significance.

According to the High Point Enterprise, North Carolina's Market Advisory Committee approved a marker that designates the market for one of the well-known silver and black cast iron markers. The report says the marker will likely be installed along S. Main St. near the IHFC after the April market.

"We're obviously pleased and proud that the state's going to do something to recognize our industry and, more importantly, our market," said Tom Conley, president and chief executive officer of the High Point Market Authority.

The proposal was submitted by Alex Stoesen, a retired Guilford College professor who served on the marker advisory committee for 15 years. The proposal was approved on Dec. 17 - one of five such proposals that received the OK.
