• World's Largest Chest Of Drawers - High Point, North Carolina

      Photo by Dennis Goza
      High Point is known as the Home Furnishings Capital of the world. Fittingly, this monument to its chief industry is a realistically detailed giant replica of an actual chest of drawers, with two socks dangling out that pay tribute to the community's hosiery trade. The first version of this building was constructed in 1926 by the Chamber Of Commerce to serve as headquarters for the Bureau Of Information. In 1996 it was renovated and enlarged to its current height of 38 feet. Formerly occupied by the Jaycess, it's now the home of Shane's Collection, a furnishings retailer.

      If you go:
      The building is accessible for a photos at any time, free of charge. Shane's Collection is open Monday - Saturday 10 am - 5 pm. While you're in the area, you might want to check out another chest of drawers at Furnitureland South, 5635 Riverdale Drive, in nearby Jamestown. It's not a freestanding structure, so it doesn't qualify for the World's biggest claim, but it stands 80 feet tall.
