Remarkable Growth of Shelby

Here’s why Shelby grows.
Loans totalling Over two and
one half million dollars are now
on the bqks of the three up
town building and loan associa
tions of Shelby. Of that amount
a little over two million dollars
has gone to the building of
homes in Shelby, it is estimated
by officials of the local associa
Today. Shelby ranks among the
leading building and loan centers of
the state although outclassed l>y
many towns and cities in population.
State building and loan officials a
year ago gave Shelby the title of a
[city of home owners. Since that time
! several hundred new homes have
; lieen constructed through the local
building and loan associations and
j quite a number are now under con
’s* ruction in various residential sec
tions and developments.
From calculations made by offi
c als of the building and loan -asso
ciations. loans outstanding through
the three associations total a little
i over 82.500,000. An estimate is that
two millions of this amount has
trope or is going towards building
One building and loan official es
| timates that three-fourths of the
loans made by h,s organization go
i for home building, while the presi
dent of another says more than that
i f>(jure goes for homes as his associa
tion stresses home building and is
none too strong for other loans.
Some loans are made for other
out poses t han home biulding hut
I from a general estimate from several
! officials $.">,000 goes out for btiildin(j
homes every time $1,000 is loaned
| for other purposes.
Shelby only a decade back was a
mere county-seat town. Then it be
: gnn to irrow. On an average the ci
tizenship was that of all small grow
: ing towns with a goodly percentage
renting their homes. Then the build
ing and loan associations became ac
tive and renters began to be home
owners. Today, few towns of similar
-•ir.e have more homes owners than
Kush on Now
In addition to the three up-town
associations a new organization was
; recently formed in South Shelby with
Marvin Blanton as secretary and
treasurer. This association has start
ed off with a vim and although in its
I infancy is adding to the home owning

the present real estate trend the asso

tent with applications for loans to
build homes in the new sections open

all the associations are several weeks

However, building and loan offi

Many of these loans, especially
dur.ng a building rush period, have
been made possible by the folks who
