Excerpt from A Brief Sketch of Shelby: A Thriving Town in the Piedmont Section of North CarolinaIn presenting this little book to the public, it is designed to give them facts only, believing, as we do, that if the public generally knew of our superb climate and other advantages, that many would be impelled to come and settle among us and help further develop our town and County. With this object in view, we send it forth and invite all to visit us and be convinced. Shelby is destined to be a Railroad centre, a summer resort, and a town of commercial importance.Shelby is full of pluck, energy and enterprise. Only last fall one of her finest brick blocks was burned to the ground; to-day it is all rebuilt, substantial, in modern style, and an ornament to any town. No capital remains idle around Shelby; it pays to invest it and all do invest and receive handsome profits. Every day new advantages open up and more money can be used to advantage. The whole town invites capital and population of pushing and go ahead people, no idlers are wanted. A large Hotel in modern style would be a paying investment now. A street car line to Cleveland Springs (distant two miles) would pay. It will pay to invest in Real Estate now. Cotton Factories pay. We could go on and mention many things that would pay, but space forbids. Read the different articles in this pamphlet and see what has been done and what is doing.Any information in regard to anything about Shelby will be cheerfully answered by the Clerk of the Town Council, or C. E. Frick, Real Estate Agent.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
