How Did Kannapolis Get Its Name Anyway? 

Kannapolis, a city with a name as unique as its history! The name “Kannapolis” comes from the Greek word “kanna,” meaning reed or cane, and “polis,” meaning city. So, in a quirky twist of etymology, Kannapolis translates to “City of Looms.” This is a nod to its roots as a major textile manufacturing hub. Fun fact: Kannapolis was once home to Cannon Mills, the world’s largest producer of towels and sheets!
