Registered Letter No. 27  Rec'd Fib 3th 1902
of H.H. Harrison
one letter
addressed to Sharber & White
E. City N.C.
L.M. Gallop P.M.

J.W. (Jehu Williams) Sharber [1859-1901] was a stockowner in a large wholesale and retail hardware store bearing his name. It was located in the center of the 600 block of E. Main St., south side. A 3-story brick building. He built some rental houses on E. Burgess St. and lived at 307, which he sold to Joseph R. Emery after he built a large 3 story residence on the S. W. corner of Front & Lawrence Sts. overlooking the river. This house was razed in order to establish Hobbs Park, for some unusual reason. The Sharber & White building has experienced several fires. Once, while still 3-stories, it was occupied by Stevens Jobbing Co. 1939-40. The last fire resulted in removing the 3rd floor, and
since then was bought by the Pasquotank Arts Council.  (Source: Albemarle People and Places by J. Howard Stevens, 1999, p.455
