  1. This is a prime example of a block which would likely be revitalized today had it not been unnecessarily demolished for parking lots. N. Main is devoid of retail business today as a result. Compare to Asheville for example.

  2. You probably saw the name “Leinbach” at the top of the Stewart Buick showroom building. Not much doubt that this was C.T.Leinbach. Stewart Buick was not located at this site as long as I thought. Originally, I thought the 1949 parade passed Stewart Buick, but it was not yet in business. If anyone knows the name of the Pontiac/Oldsmobile place located there in 1949, it would be appreciated. Also, right beside City Hall, for a long time there was a Coca Cola bottling company. Anyone remember it?
