Traditional Home Magazine and the Junior League of Greensboro are sponsoring an extraordinary design event, the proceeds of which will benefit the Junior League’s mission and its partnership with Cone Elementary and other worthwhile causes for the Greensboro community. Adamsleigh — has been chosen as this years show house. High Point textile magnate John Hampton (“Hamp”) Adams and his wife Elizabeth from Adamsville, South Carolina commissioned Luther Lashmit, talented architect to design the house. Mr Adams was co-founder of Adams-Millis Corporation, the first company in High Point to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange. Mr. Lashmit designed the house in 1929, but the house wasn’t finished until 1931, you can read more about that here. Adamsleigh is known as “Greensboro’s Grandest House,” or more casually as “the mansion that socks built.”
