Per the Mayor's FB page, the city has identified six sites to which the Jones-Lee house can be relocated. The city doesn't have funding to move it and he is asking the public for interested parties to come forward. The potential relocation sites are:

703 & 705 W. 5th Street
801 - 805 W. 5th Street
901 W. 5th Street
616 Albemarle Avenue
714 Albemarle Avenue
702 Fleming Street
700 Pamlico Street

All locations in West Greenville. The 5th Street locations are empty parcels across the street from the Gold Post Cafe. Frankly, I think any of the 5th Street locations would be excellent so long as the house remains occupied by its tenants and is maintained. There are plenty of old homes in West Greenville that have fallen into disrepair.

Albemarle Ave. feels like it could become part of the uptown area as it connects to Dickinson north of the Connector and I'd rather see Albemarle with structures that fit that designation rather than a single-family home repurposed as office, however, gorgeous and historic it may be. Gainesville, FL has many old homes repurposed in this manner, and they're located just off downtown - a location like 5th Street.

^ I think this will do great here. I went to one of these self pour places in Charleston & loved it. A great way to try out new flavors & drinks that you ordinary wouldn't try because you wouldn't want to buy a whole beer.



This is totally different than any other brewery here, I'm stoked.

welcome to Greenville where anytime there is a potential development, neighbors start yelling about traffic concerns.

That's what I don't get. Greenville already has traffic problems. What's a little more traffic for something being build on open land right in the middle of Fire Tower Rd? It's not like the road isn't gonna be improved soon anyway.
