Description
Until 1900 Hickory was called Hickory Tavern Station, after the tavern and stagecoach stop that was the town's center of activity. Today it's known for a thriving furniture-manufacturing industry.
Just east of nearby Claremont on old US 70A is the 85-foot-long Bunker Hill Covered Bridge. Constructed in 1895, it is one of two covered bridges remaining in North Carolina. Although closed to vehicles, pedestrians can cross it at certain times; phone (828) 465-0383 for schedule information.
