It All Started...It All Started...
In 1854 Burlington was formed as a railroad repair center
originally named “Company Shops.” For thirty years the
railroad was THE industry here, but in 1886 the railroad
company left. The town could have perished, but its citizens
faced the challenge and turned the community in a new
direction with a new name—Burlington. Textiles, an aircraft
factory, electronic manufacturing and a clinical laboratory
company developed and became the citizens’ livelihood.
Migration to the west side of town soon gave way to growth
and prosperity in Burlington, including the development
of new towns such as Elon and Glen Raven. These towns
used the telephone exchange 584. This exchange was often
associated with the new “IN” place to be.
Thus the term “5-8-4” was born! Today the phrase “5-8-4” is
used to express something is “excellent” or the “place to be.”
