1927: I.B. Lacroix opened a gas station on the east corner of the block. It was later moved across the street where it remained under the ownership of his son, I.B. Lacroix, Jr. Bucky Pease's Garage replaced the Gremillion home adjacent to the Lacroix station. Before Rubin "Doc" O'Neal received a city franchise for bus service in 1939, residents called the Five O One Taxi Company, also located next to the station, for five cent rides to Alexandria. Others who operated taxis in Pineville were W.H. Barton, Shorty Dodd, Lawrence Singleton, and the Floyd Brothers. From 1941 until 1989, the Post Office was located at 801 Main Street. The building now houses the senior Citizen's Center. Pineville Grammar and Junior High School was built on the Reagan homesite in 1916 and rebuilt after a fire destroyed it in 1959.
