A MOVE FORWARD
Signs of Awakening Evident From
Work Now Under Way and From
Plans That Are Being
PRIVATE RESIDENCES AND BUS-
INESS HOUSES ON WAY:
That Brevard is waking up, in the
matter of building more houses is
evident from the list of those already
mentioned in recent issues of Tiie
News and others which will soon be
well under way. Perhaps “boom” is
too extravagaiit a word to describe
the movement as yet, but a wave has
certainly begun to make itself felt,
though the crest is not yet in sight.
The building and developing work
carried on by Miss Florence Kem
^W'as mentioned in last week^s issue.
%In North Brevard Luther Salts has
«rected and is now occupying a resi
dence which adds x^eh to the street
up Gallamore HiH. ^ ^
A Busier Broiid. ;.
Broad street wilJ look more like a
■•business thoTouglifnre when the build
ing operations planned are completed.
George Philip is to -occupy the corner
of Broad and Jordan with a brick
store building fm the manufacture
and sale of things good to eat; while
further up fhc street the Pickelsimer
building ’wHl iiTl fhe present yawning j
gap bf^ tween the Dunns Rock Build- j
ing i.nd the Davis - Walker Drug i
The Pickelsimcr building is to be )
erected as soon as the bricks arrive, j
according to Elza Hamilton, who has |
the contract for doing the work. The
cobblestone pillars, formerly enter
ing into the -flesign, were removed
this week. There will be in this ,
place a two - story brick building, j
with G1 feet 'foontage and extending ,
back 86 feet. On the ground floor |
there will be three store rooms^ while
offices will orcupy the second floor, j
Both stories are to have fire - proof :
cement floors. One of the first floor ;
rooms will used by J. W. Smith
for a l»rber shop, it is understood.
Beside the Tiuilding plans for pri
vate occupation as yet ‘‘in the air”,'
definite steps are now being taken for
the erection of two such houses. J.
W. Smith has already started the j
construction of a seven - room house i
next door to the residence which h« j
now occupies •on Maple Street. The ,
new house will be of the pebble dash |
variety, and will be used by Mr. and
Mrs. Smith as their home.
On a beautiful location on Probarte
Street, next to Mrs. Laura Miller’s
place, R. P. Kilpatrick is making pre
parations to Iroild a seven or eight
room bungalow, which he expects to
be able to occupy before the summer

All told, the building operations
now under way or waiting for the op

investment of $30,000 or more in the
