The Millennium Gate is about 20 feet tall with a center rotating piece, which is about 6 feet wide and about 14 feet tall. The Millennium Gate depicts people, historical and cultural events, and inventions that helped shape the history and growth of Greensboro. Examples of the icons that make up the gate include a chair, which draws attention to the furniture industry that has greatly impacted North Carolina’s economy, and the Statue of Liberty, which was chosen to symbolize the importance that immigration has had on the United States. The 105 icons were selected by the Greensboro community and highlights the 1,000 years before the erection of the gate.
