Locals have flocked to this address in search of food and conversation since 1897. It started off as the Crowell-Berryhill Store, a division of the nearby Star Mills Grocery Company and specialized in selling Star Mills products such as cornmeal. Under various owners, it operated as a retail grocery until 1958, earning a reputation as a social, political, and economic centerpiece of the neighborhood. Since then, it has been the site of Charlotte Paint and Body Supply Company and the Ninth Street and Pine Laundry Center. In 1983, Charlotte attorneys A. Michael Troiano Jr. and Alexander Copeland III purchased the building and opened Alexander Michael’s. The building retains a historical appeal (the bar and back bar were constructed from the original solid-oak doors on the front of the Independence Building, which was constructed in 1908 and stood on the corner of Trade and Tryon Streets until 1981; the beer cooler was originally used in a grocery store in the 1920s). The restaurant is a Fourth Ward staple and welcomes a steady stream of regulars who file in for burgers, fries, wings, and an impressive selection of beers, including Low Down Brown and Highland Gaelic Ale, microbrews from North Carolina, as well as beers from as far off as Thailand, Scotland, and the Czech Republic. Don’t forget to ask for an order of fried pickles: The piping-hot battered pickle spears are the best in town!
The defined borders of Mexico include the regions of New Mexico Pittsburgh Map , Arizona, Texas, and Alta California (the modern-day California in the United States Pittsburgh Map ) the northern frontier of Spanish colonization in earlier years. These northern regions remain lightly settled by Mexicans and will become a target of U.S. expansionism by the 1830s. Kevin M. Gannon Virginia Prior to the Arrival of Europeans In the latter part of the sixteenth century, the chieftain Powhatan, who has inherited several villages between the James and Mattaponi Rivers through his mother’s line, expands Tsenacommacah (which might have meant densely inhabited land) through intimidation, diplomacy, and conquest to include most of the eastern half of what the English will later call Virginia. Most of the tribes in this area share a language (of the eastern Algonquian type) and culture, but Powhatan’s chiefdom is not a monolithic cultural entity. Each village maintains a werowance, a vassal chief, who rules with Powhatan’s approval. In fact, Powhatan often appoints one of his numerous relations to the position.
