First of all, I can neither confirm nor deny whether this structure is truly the "World's Largest Chest Of Drawers." But I know everyone refers to this High Point landmark as the "World's Largest Chest Of Drawers," and sometimes it's easier just not to argue.

The building stood 20 feet high when it was originally built in 1926. Un 1996, it was rebuilt into its current form standing 38 feet tall with two huge socks dangling from the second of its three drawers.

From the front, it looks like a giant chest of drawers, but if you go around back you can see an entrance into office spaces. We have always loved the World's Largest Chest of Drawers and in the past decade, it has been on the market several times and each time we wish that we could purchase it and turn it into the officialsr StrangeCarolinas Headquarters. Unfortunately, it was sold in 2018 to the Children's Museum opening a few blocks away. So it looks like we'll have to find somewhere else to plot our world domination. We'll still take visitors to see it though. Every time someone comes to town. I make it a point to get them to see the world's largest chest of drawers.

I tell them I had a friend that worked in the top drawer next to the junk vibrator. No one ever laughs.










UPDATE (05.01.16)

So we ended up in High Point this evening and we decided to check out the World's Largest Chest Of Drawers again. To our horror, it's been repainted a hideous gray and has now lost its wood appearance. I'm really hoping this is some sort of in-between primer stage or something.


UPDATE (08.13.17)

The building is for sale once again.


UPDATE (08.18.19)

The building has been painted back to its original colors.
