History[edit] In the 1850s, under a huge hickory tree, Henry Robinson built a tavern of logs.[citation needed] The city of " Hickory
Hickory
Tavern" co-founded by "Dolph" Shuford,[5] was established in 1863, and the name was eventually changed to the city of Hickory
Hickory
in 1873.[5] The first train operated in the city of " Hickory
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).[6] The community of Hickory
Hickory
was the first for many things in North Carolina, including the council-manager form of government it adopted in 1913. Hickory
Hickory
was also one of the first towns to install electric lights in 1888 and a complete sewage system in 1904.[7] In 1868, Dr. Jeremiah Ingold, pastor of the German Reformed Grace Charge, established Hickory's first school, the Free Academy.[8] In 1891, Lenoir–Rhyne University
Lenoir–Rhyne University
(then Highland Academy) was founded by four Lutheran pastors with 12 initial students.[9] Hickory
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
Hickory
White, formerly known as Hickory
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. Hickory
Hickory
was known in the years after World War II for the "Miracle of Hickory". In 1944 the area around Hickory
Hickory
(the Catawba Valley) became the center of one of the worst outbreaks of polio ever recorded. Residents who were then children recall summers of not being allowed to play outside or visit friends for fear of contracting the disease. Since local facilities were inadequate to treat the victims, the citizens of Hickory
Hickory
and the March of Dimes
March of Dimes
decided to build a hospital to care for the children of the region. From the time the decision was made until equipment, doctors, and patients were in a new facility, took less than 54 hours. Several more buildings were quickly added. A Red Cross official on the scene praised the project "as the most outstanding example of cooperative effort he has ever seen."[10] The city also came to national attention when the remains of Zahra Baker were found leading to a police investigation where Zahra's stepmother, Elise Baker, was found guilty of second-degree murder. The Zahra Baker All Children's playground, located in Kiwanis Park, is named in her honor.

Economy[edit] The Hickory
Hickory
area historically competed in new industries and technologies by applying old strengths and favorable geography to new opportunities. In this way, wagon-making know-how, proximity to expansive forests, and excellent transportation via two intersecting railroads provided fertile ground for the emergence of the furniture industry.[22] Likewise experience with textile manufacturing and easy access to power drove new industries in both fiber-optic cable[22] and pressure-sensitive tape.[23] The furniture industry in Hickory
Hickory
is not as strong as in the decades previous, but still a primary component in the area economy, and includes HSM (formerly Hickory
Hickory
Springs, founded 1944), a leading manufacturer of mattress coils. Currently the area is home to many leading manufacturers of furniture, fiber optic cable, and pressure-sensitive tape.[23] It is estimated 60% of the nation's furniture used to be produced within a 200-mile (320 km) radius of Hickory. Forty percent of the world's fiber optic cable is made in the Hickory

area.[24] The Hickory
