The first settlers in Burlington were Quakers, German farmers and Scots-Irish immigrants when the North Carolina Railroad expanded across the state. The area surrounding Burlington was a perfect midway point to set up repair shops, which were constructed in 1859 to deal with mechanical troubles. A town then sprouted up around the shops, consisting of a church, bank, hotel and restaurant. The town was originally called Company Shops.


After the Civil War, the railroad shifted operations to Spencer, North Carolina, and the town of Company Shops altered its focus and changed its name to Burlington in 1893. During the Industrial Revolution, Burlington became a textile and manufacturing town, and eventually created Burlington Industries, which is now headquartered in Greensboro.
