Several attractive storefronts lined the south side of Morgan St. between Holland St. on the west side and Rigsbee Ave. on the east. The Piedmont Furniture Co. was located on the southeast corner of Holland and Morgan (at 219-223 Morgan St.)

The businesses in the 200 block of Morgan St. directly faced the Big 4 warehouse and the Star Brick warehouse; many of the businesses in the early 20th century were geared towards farmers who had come to town to sell tobacco


211-213 Morgan, home of Byrd Bros and Pickett, later Stone Bros. and Byrd, December 1963.

In ~1968, these structures were demolished by the city using urban renewal funds.

The parcels have been surface parking since then.


Looking southeast, 2007.
