J. A. Jones Construction Company

The company was established at the turn of the century, when Charlotte was beginning to expand from a good-sized town into a city of the New South, and had a hand in erecting many of its larger structures. While the building that housed the Carolina Theatre was not one of the firm’s biggest ventures, company owners took particular pride in its craftsmanship, noting the “nicety of construction demanded,” and declaring, “Every blue print was made with demands for comfort, beauty and elaborateness.”
