This article examines the state of industry, religion and social differentiation in Siler City, North Carolina between 1884 and 1932. It also covered how Siler City was incorporated as a New South town from 1884 to 1932. In this case, incorporation refers both to the union in or into one body and the action of forming into a community or corporation. In terms of race and class, religious congregations played a significant role in forming and maintaining social differences imposed by the industrialization during the formative years.
