    I have operated a business at this location over the past twenty five years. I have been told by an " old timer"
    that Mr. Erwin had built the Iredell houses for employees. This person also told me that at dusk Mr. Erwin
    used to ride his bicycle up Iredell street, yelling to everyone on their porches to "go inside and go to bed".
    He was known to be a " skin-flint "; and by telling his employees to go to bed, he might save on the
    electricy bill, since he provided that with the housing. What an image ...lol.
