City Transfer Celebrated with Historic Marker

4/1/2019 19-AWG-0010-2019-Atlas-2019-Forum-PRINTED-Amplifier_DIGITAL-REVF.jpg
In this day and age, it’s not always common to see a family-run business surpass a century-long mile marker. It is with this commonality that makes City Transfer and Storage Company (0630) quite the exception.
Their roots trace back to 1908 when I.M. Lassiter started the business with a team of mules, horses, and a wagon in High Point, NC. With his vision for a company that could haul just about anything, as long as it fit in the wagon of course, the City Transfer and Storage Company was born.
Since its inception over 100 years ago, the agency has seen three generations of the Lassiter family, all of whom have played an integral role in the growth and longevity they’ve experienced today. 2019 marked a big milestone for the agency and their success over the years, as they celebrated their 111 year anniversary.
In honor of this monumental occasion, the city of High Point dedicated a new historic marker honoring the oldest, family-owned business in North Carolina. This landmark pays homage to their commitment to excellence and high quality service to the city and surrounding areas throughout the years.
