HIGH POINT, N.C. - An exhibit featuring fragments of the Dead Sea Scrolls ended its 87-day stay here on Sunday with significant attendance and an economic impact of at least $3.6 million, officials said.

The 54,206 visitors and their "conservative economic impact" on High Point's economy were second only to the twice-a-year International Home Furnishings Market held in High Point, said Charlotte Young, president of High Point Convention & Visitors Bureau.
