1910: Main Street was paved and sidewalks were added. Prior to 1927, homes and vacant filled the block. The Protective Union Hall, Negro Benevolent Society, was both meeting place and school for black children until 1916. In the late 20's, the Society sold land to Earl Moore for commercial development. Moore's holdings included property on both sides of the street with such renters as Morgan and Lindsey Variety Store, Paul's Barber Shop, Pineville Ice and Cold Storage Company and the Pineville Shoe Shop owned by three generations of McPhearsons. 1879; Bright Morning Star Baptist Church stood at the corner of Shamrock and Main. 1931: A two story town hall was built at that location. Both the fire department and library were housed in the town hall until 1948, when the library was moved to Shamrock Street in a building provided by Roy O. Martin.
