Nestled at the threshold of the Piedmont Foothills, King, North Carolina, is blessed with rural beauty, a neighborly spirit, and small-town Southern charm. The community, rooted in agriculture, was originally called King's Cabin after one of the first homes built in the area around 1826. It was settled in the 1880s by several founding families whose wisdom, along with the railroad, helped awaken the quiet countryside to new life. Ironically this town named after a home has become one of the fastest growing bedroom communities in North Carolina's Piedmont Triad. Images of America: King captures the history, heritage, and heart of a community founded by families who saw beyond the setting sun. These settlers helped establish churches, schools, businesses, and a community spirit that still, more than a century later, lives today.
