We new it was getting closer. The proliferation of furniture stores that were now surrounding us meant it had to be near. But we weren’t looking for a place that sold furniture: we were looking for a place that was furniture.

Finally, we saw it up ahead and pulled over into a lot across the street: the world’s largest chest of drawers.

When planning my road trip through North Carolina, this was on the top of my must-see list. And it certainly didn’t disappoint. The huge cartoon-like structure towered over both us and the traffic lights.

First built in the 1920s by the High Point Chamber of Commerce, the structure pays homage to the town’s status as the “Home Furnishing Capital of the World.”

The first incarnation was twenty feet tall, but in 1996 renovation, more levels were added, creating the 38-foot tall dresser that stands there today.

This was not just a chest though, it was actually a building. A building that, at the time, was for sale. As we admired the roadside attraction from across the street, my friend and I pondered buying it. I mean, think of all the clothes we could store!
