Destination Hollar Mill includes Highland Avenue Restaurant, located at 883 Highland Avenue SE, Hickory NC, which is Hickory’s premier fine dining restaurant; and, The Crossing at Hollar Mill, which is a 10,000-square-foot full-service rental venue and concert hall. The businesses were founded with a mission to offer extreme hospitality to each guest. The company is committed to preserving Hickory’s history and honoring it with sustainable and thoughtful development.
In March of 1983 lay leaders of six “downtown” churches began serving the hungry on a rotating basis. By 1985, the Hickory Soup Kitchen was serving 25-90 people, five days a week, and the old Highland Fire Station became its first permanent home. During 1990, the kitchen outgrew its space and needed more space. The City of Hickory offered the old Post Office Annex for a new facility, which isthe Hickory Soup Kitchen’s current location.
