The Lawrence Presbyterian Church purchased a lot on Myers Lane from Mr. and Mrs. W.E. Younts in 1888.  The original structure was replaced by the present building, and the chapel remained in service until 1974 when they merged with the Metropolitan Presbyterian Church in Charlotte.  In 1975, the Church sold the edifice to Pineville native, Edward Davis, as he currently uses the structure as a furniture upholstery business.[i]
