Asheboro developed as the main courthouse and market town for Randolph County, located in the gently rolling hills of the North Carolina piedmont. The county was largely a place of small farms until the arrival of railroads in the 1890s. Farming remained a mainstay, but furniture manufacturing and textile manufacturing added a degree of new economic momentum. By the mid-twentieth century, Randolph County boasted some 50,000 citizens, 7,000 of whom lived at Asheboro, the county seat. [1]
