[ARCHIVED] P.H. Hanes Historic Marker Unveiling Scheduled for Friday

A virtual unveiling of a new local historic marker for the P.H. Hanes Knitting Company will be shown at 6 p.m. Friday, April 23, on WSTV Digital Media (Spectrum channel 13 and ATT U-verse channel 99) and on the city’s YouTube channel (youtube.com/user/winstonsalemcitygov).

P.H. Hanes started his knitting company in 1902 after selling his successful tobacco company to R.J. Reynolds. The company would grow to become one of the nation’s largest manufacturers of underwear and other knitted products. 

Speakers will include Mayor Allen Joines, North Ward Council Member and Mayor Pro Tempore Denise D. Adams, Northeast Ward Council Member Barbara Hanes Burke, Historic Resources Commission Chair Kevin Owen, and Rosalie Hanes Horton. The program will include a short video about the history of the company.

The marker is on Sixth Street between Church and Main streets.
