Z. V. Pate Store

William Daniel Tucker, attributed contractor

Early 1900s

Laurel Hill, Scotland County
Street Address:

Morgan St. at Malloy St. (formerly Main St. at Railroad St.), Laurel Hill, NC






See the Laurinburg Exchange, April 1 and April 5, 1949. There were at least two large Z. V. Pate stores in Scotland County. Zebulon Vance Pate was a prominent merchant and political figure. In addition to the large, 2-story brick Z. V. Pate Store credited to builder William Tucker in Laurel Hill, there is another Z. V. Pate Store in Gibson, N. C., which is little changed: the Laurinburg Exchange of April 28, 1910, reported that the “mammoth department store” at Gibson was under construction, to be 275 feet long and 75 feet wide, with a siding from the North and South Carolina Railroad. Its builder is as yet unknown. Evidently the street names in Laurel Hill have been changed in recent decades.
