James Vester Miller was chief brickmason for the 1925 Municipal Building. The cornucopias over the side doorway mark the entrance to the City Market, located there from 1926 to 1932. Of slave parentage, Miller achieved renown as a craftsman, contractor, and teacher. His works include Hopkins Chapel, Mount Zion and Saint Matthias churches; commercial buildings; and residences.

Placed by the Carolina Power & Light Company and the YMI Cultural Center in honor of all the African-American craftsmen who helped build the city
