About Kannapolis

Kannapolis is a city located in Cabarrus and Rowan counties in the state of North Carolina. It was founded in 1906 as a textile mill town and was named after James William Cannon, the founder of the Cannon Mills Company. The city quickly grew and became one of the largest textile manufacturing centers in the United States. Kannapolis was known for its production of towels, sheets, and other cotton products.

Freight transportation played a crucial role in the growth and success of Kannapolis. The city was strategically located on the main rail line between Charlotte and Salisbury, which allowed for efficient transportation of raw materials and finished products. The Cannon Mills Company had its own rail line, known as the "Kannapolis and Landis Railroad," which connected the mills to the main rail line. This rail network facilitated the movement of goods and materials, making Kannapolis a hub for freight transportation in the region.

In addition to rail transportation, Kannapolis also had access to water transportation through the nearby Yadkin River. The river was used for transporting goods to and from the mills, providing an alternative mode of transportation for larger shipments. The combination of rail and water transportation allowed Kannapolis to efficiently move its products to markets across the country.
