If you go into Catawba Pharmacy..it will likely be on the rendering of East Belmont.

Across the street from the Historical Society is the big white house that houses all the photos you can view/buy. They probably have 10 pictures of it.

Anyone who wants to know anything about history should call Allen McMillan across from the Belmont historical bldg on Woodrow. He's got photo's of everything and a wealth of information. What a gem of a man he is to our town!

the old theater in belmont is still there. a man gutted it out and turned it into a place to work on car engines he moved out and i think it is empty now it is located between beauty shop and the old pool hall and i also went every week in the 60s.
