Benjamin F. Huntley established the B.F. Huntley Furniture Co. and began manufacturing furniture on this site in 1906. A small building on this corner housed the office, and the factory extended north and east. An active Baptist, Mr. Huntley donated eleven acres in 1921 to the N.C. Baptist Hospital, which became the main campus of Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. He also led the effort to build First Baptist Church on Fifth Street in 1924. At his death fn 1925, he established a trust to benefit Baptist Hospital. In 1954, a major fire damaged most of the factory, but the original office building survived. Thomasville Furniture bought the company in 1961 and continued to build furniture here until 2006.
