I like the idea of making this a history thread.
I lived in Pineville and now live in CA. I remember the Hub Grill - had great lunches there.
Also remember the old Greyhound bus station, Bell and Roaden Theaters. On Sat. everyone in Bell Co was shopping at the Fair Store or A & P, Krogers,
Some people were playing musical instruments on court house square and also some were preaching the damnation of sins. Lots of memories.

I remember the same things. We lived out in the county and we got on that greyhound bus every Sat
and went to the movies. That sure was the good old
days.

I too loved Mr.Martin with the furniture store.
Bought a nice 4 poster bed there. My Mom passed away last year and I got the bed. It is good wood, they do not make them like that anymore.Remember the smell of popcorn at either the Bell or Rhoden Theaters. I think someone said they restored the old Bell Theater. I loved to go to Newberry's. Bought candies and sometimes when I had enough money, I liked the perfume called, and I think it was Blue Waltz came in a blue bottle. Do not see it anymore.
Wish I could go back and live the good old days, don't you?

Remember Miss Mabel's, now that is old. The theater on Pine Street, and where Ky. Fried is there was once a nice restaurant and was built on an indian mound. There was a restaurant up from the Bell Theater call the City Cafe I believe and my parents told me you could order a "half cup of coffee" (aka booze). There were glass greasy windows on the front where they grilled, etc. We never went in there to eat, however we did eat at the Hub Grill quite frequently. Anyone remember the bakery, there where the old bowling alley (duck pins) and skating rink was. So long ago.

The Hub Grill was owned by George Karloftis and Myrtle Rhodes Karloftis. Does anyone remember them?

I remember Blind Georges they sold the best hot dogs and coke that was ever served by anyone. When I was a kid I kept a earache and my dad took me to the drug store Sam Morgans and he put some kind of drops in my ear and it stopped the pain immediately didn't have to have a prescription just told him what we were there for. I remember some other places that I want mention some houses of Ill-repute, and pine street was like the wild west to me back in the day. Use to hang out at the chain rock motel and eat at the chain rock cafeteria I could go on but time wont permit but I do love going back in time in my mind. Oh and the ball field that became lake mistake now the golf course I remember the train track that crossed 25-E at lake mistake, Howard's restaurant where Community Trust Bank is now I also remember when it was Jacks.

No if I am going to put up Videos they will what I enjoy and show a positive view and feel for a part of the world that has great beauty and good people that have carved homes and lives out of the side of these mountains... Rugged Individuals that raised good people that have made great contributions to the world.. Yes we have our Bad.. But we have Good people, doing good deeds, and living good lives and that's what I try to Photograph and Film... Q

Bot sure he had anything to do with the founding of Pineville, which at that time was known as Cumberland Ford.
Isaac Shelby owned a house in Pineville, close to the Narrows.
