Historic showhouse to open during High Point Market
By Staff

Miles Redd, Suzanne Kasler and Eric Cohler are among the designers participating in a showhouse presented by Traditional Home and the Junior League of Greensboro (JLG) at the historic Adamsleigh estate in Greensboro, NC. The opening gala takes place Friday, April 19, on the eve of the Spring High Point Furniture Market, enabling designers and bloggers who are in town for Market to attend. The house will be open to the public for two weeks from April 20-May 5.

The house was designed in 1928 for High Point textile magnate John Hampton "Hamp" Adams, the co-founder of Adams-Millis Corporation, the first High Point-based company to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange. Located at 3301 Alamance Road in Greensboro, NC, it is approximately 15,000 square feet and comprised of 33 rooms including 10 bedrooms. It sits on 13.5 acres of pools, a lake, tennis courts, and a stone gazebo.

"The Adamsleigh Estate provides the perfect venue for timeless design and modern living to come together in a fresh new way. And it's a privilege to help the Junior League of Greensboro raise funds to continue to support their local community," said Ann Maine, Editor in Chief of Traditional Home.

The funds raised from the show house will enable the JLG in its mission to make a difference in local education, specifically at Cone Elementary School, according to Emily Faucher, Junior League President.
