World's Largest Chest of Drawers: High Point, N.C.
Originally known as the "Bureau of Information," the world's largest chest of drawers lives in High Point, N.C. and was constructed in 1926 as a monument to the city's status as "Home Furnishings Capital of the World."
The chest is actually the facade of the home of the High Point Jaycees, which is a humanitarian organization. Getting your picture taken next to this large dresser makes even the tallest person look tiny in comparison. The Goddard-Townsend style dresser was rebuilt in 1996 to meet its current 38-foot-tall version. Not to be outdone, a furniture company down the road built a dresser more than 80 feet tall, but it's not freestanding; it's actually an elaborate storefront.
