The present-day city of Burlington, North Carolina has its origins as a repair center for the North Carolina Railroad in the 1850s.
How can you, as a homeowner, pay homage to this tradition of mending and restoring in the Burlington of today? Perhaps through the fine art of kitchen refacing.
After all, refacing gives you the opportunity to have a kitchen that looks and feels totally new, without the invasiveness of a full kitchen tear out and renovation.
Of course, refacing is far more than just a simple patching or coverup job, especially when it’s performed by the expert craftsmen at American Wood Reface.
In the hands of true professionals, refacing is your chance to realize the kitchen of your dreams.
Read on to learn more about what refacing from American Wood Reface can do for your Burlington kitchen.

“The Eighth Wonder of the World”
Although Burlington was not incorporated until 1893, the city had been an important settlement for decades before that. This was due, initially, to the presence of the railroad, which reportedly dazzled the early residents.
The story goes that when the local people first glimpsed the train passing through Alamance County, (present-day Burlington is located in the Piedmont Triad, in both Alamance and Guilford Counties), they proclaimed it to be “the eighth wonder of the world.”
Of course, at this time, there was no city called Burlington. The Burlington name wouldn’t come about until the 1880s.
From shortly after the arrival of the railroad until the selection of “Burlington” as the city’s name, it was known by the somewhat uninspiring moniker, “Company Shops.”
If it’s further inspiration you’re after, then Burlington will provide it for you.
That’s because Burlington can lay claim to being the site of the first armed clash between American colonists and the British Crown, way back in 1771. (Of course, there was no Burlington yet in 1771, but you can visit the Alamance Battleground and Museum which is located just south of today’s Burlington.)
Refacing, quite simply, is a comprehensive upgrade for your kitchen. It gives you the opportunity to have a kitchen that doesn’t just look new, but also feels new.
You can see proof of this in the work that American Wood Reface has performed in the kitchens of other homeowners just like you.
