The High Point Historical Society funded a second Summer Internship in 2023 focused on the Highland Cotton Mill Village and its neighborhood association. Bonnie Showfety worked with Museum Registrar Corinne Midgett to complete interviews with Highland Mill Village residents and to develop a walking tour of the Highland Mill Historic District for the High Point Museum’s app. Besides describing life in the neighborhood, many interviewees talked about work at the mill. Their stories inspired Bonnie to learn more about strikes and labor union activity. While High Point saw fewer strikes and no violent labor unrest like in other North Carolina cities, Bonnie found that textile and hosiery workers at Highland did fight for better wages and working conditions.
