Shelby East Side
(Use the buttons below to navigate west along Main Street or north.)
Note all the lots that have been created west of Broadway between
Main Street and Smiley Avenue. Many of these lots were just that,
empty lots waiting to be purchased by all of the new citizens
that were expected to arrive soon.
Shelby's newly created and growing businesses and factories
were causing a demand for labor that would also require more
housing services.
The lots along East Main Street beyond Third Street were largely
vacant. There were only a few houses along what is labeled
"Clark's Addition". The "Grand Boulevard" had just "opened"
and had been within the year, a large open field. At this
point, no more than two houses were being built on all
those empty, available lots.
