City Background and History

Winston-Salem is the fifth largest city in the state of North Carolina, with a population of 230,000. Known as the Twin City, the area also has the colorful moniker of the ‘Camel City’ thanks to J. Reynolds Tobacco Company’s Camel cigarettes, which are produced and based in the city. Locals refer to the area as Winston, though the area actually started its life as the town of Salem in 1753. The area was renamed Winston after local Revolutionary War hero Joseph Winston in 1852. The area remained a sleepy backwater for the next few decades, until big tobacco made its way to town. After the first tobacco factory was built there in 1875, the area quickly became a hub of the industry, and there were over 40 tobacco factories here just ten years later. At one point, the area was importing and exporting so much tobacco related products that it was officially designated a port of entry by the United States, despite the fact it lies 200 miles inland from the sea. It was the eighth busiest port in the country in 1916. The now standard formal name of the city started with the Post Office referring to the area as Winston-Salem, and the city was officially incorporated as such in 1913.

The tobacco industry’s legacy can be seen all over Winston-Salem. Perhaps the most enduring mark is the Reynolds Building, which, when completed in 1929, was the tallest building south of the Mason-Dixon line. The building is considered the prototype for the Empire State Building, which was built a few years later in New York City. This is such a widely accepted fact that the staff at the Empire State Building send a Father’s Day card to the staff at Reynolds every year to honor its role in the building’s design and creation. Today, however, the area is fast becoming a leader in nano and bio-tech fields, and this sector accounts for much of the new job growth in Winston-Salem.

For some entertainment, look no further than SciWorks, a science emporium with over 250,00 square feet of exhibits, a planetarium, habitat parks for local wildlife like the river otter, science camps, and education outreach programs for local schools. If you’d like to see how those in the early days of Winston-Salem lived, check out Old Salem. You won’t find any witches here, but the restored community features original buildings from the 1750s through the 1850s, and comes complete with period-accurate shops as well as workers plying their trade the old-fashioned way while interacting with guest and shoppers.

With all this, relocating to Winston-Salem is a no brainer. Contact Winston-Salem auto shipping companies today to make the move to the Camel City!
