About

The brick building that houses Smoke on the Square served as Shelby’s city hall and firehouse until the completion of the present municipal building in 1939.  The building is distinguished by the three round stained glass attic windows under its dentilled cornice and by segmental-arched window and door openings, including a wide front opening for fire engines (originally horse drawn).  The street-level front was modified to accommodate an A&P grocery store after 1939, when the present city hall was completed.  The building was rehabilitated in 2002, and now is home to Smoke on the Square.  A family owned restaurant boasting:  Soulful Southern Fare with Flare!  Thank You!
