    Rooming house at 434 E. Piedmont Ave near intersection with the west side of the 1000 block of Fayetteville St. (now near the current site of Fisher Memorial United Holy Church of America) Additional photo of burned out shell located at library.digitalnc.org/durham urban renewal records. I remember that day well, as I was one of the helpers pulling fire hoses on that saturday morning in the snow.

    This house belonged to my great-uncle, Noah McLamb.  It was a boarding house under the name "THE WELCOME INN".  This was one of the first major fires in Hayti after black firemen were hired to man #4 fire station at Fayetteville St. and Pekoe St.  Mr. McLamb did not rebuild but relocated down Fayetteville St. near Roosevelt St.
